The journey to Yaroslavl

Some photographs made during the journey to Yaroslavl, part of the Golden Ring of Russia.

In October I decided to visit Yaroslavl located located 250 kilometers north-east of Moscowat at the confluence of the Volga and the Kotorosl Rivers. This brilliant representative of the Russian Golden Ring celebrated its millennium in 2010.

Sunny weather was perfect for a walk on the quay and center of Yaroslavl.

A huge number of Orthodox churches are located in Yaroslavl. I counted more than two dozen churches in the center of the city.

I managed to climb to the belfry of Spassky Monastery. Apparently, this is the best place to photograph a panorama of Yaroslavl.

Unfortunately, one day is not enough to explore all that I planned. That's why I am going to return to Yaroslavl someday!
