Located at the Andropova Ave., next to a large nice fountain and close to the shopping arrea, this typical Orthodoxed designed Chapel is a real eye catcher. Prince Alexander lived in the 13th censury and was known as a great warrior.

Our city tour allowed us to have some free time in the square where the Nevsky Chapel is located. It seems to be around the corner from the Church of Elijah. The Nevsky Chapel stands out in this square looking like a decorated gingerbread cookie with its lavish white trim over top a reddish brown brick. Its just a small church with silvered tent roofs topped with gold onion shaped domes and the most delightful white carved plaster trim around the doors, window, and roof line. Its design reminded me of a tiered wedding cake with its broad base for the church body and the hexagonal cupola placed ontop. The entrance porch to the church has a silvered looking helmet roof. On the sides of the church 8 small niches held small white vases. The small windows appeared to have stained glass in them. There was no belfry. We were satisfied just with the opportunity to take pictures of this picturesque chapel which blended in well with the other historical buildings in Yaroslavl. There was no information given for this church being in the square and it looked more like a monument than a church that people would attend. The city park personnel were busy planting out whimsical shaped floral beds around his chapel on my visit. The multicolored peacock, its appearance completely shaped with flowers was such a surprise beside the church. Other floral displays included matryoshka dolls and a large flower petal. It was interesting to see these shapes take form as the colorful annuals were inserted into the dolls' frames. The surrounding shops and fresh fruit/vegetable market were also good photo stops and for souvenir buying.…

During our stroll in the city center, we found that there was a park with beautiful flower competition displays, fountains and the nice Alexander Nevsky Chapel there. The traditional Russian-styled structure on tented roof with brickwork construction. A pleasant environment for relaxing around. Recommended.…

Situated in the main square in Yaroslavl, just around from the main marketplace, this church sits as a historical building in a more modern setting. No tours were offered when we were in town, but we were able to enjoy the setting, with flower beds and fountains nearby.
