YAROSLAVL - Russia © volgariver -

Yaroslavl is a unique city on the Volga where nature’s beauty is breathtaking and the ancient architecture and modern industry blend so harmoniously. According to the legend, the Grand Prince of Kiev Iaroslav the Wise killed a bear and ordered to construct a fortress. It is this legend which gave the city’s emblem, a bear with a pole axe featured on a silver shield. The fortress, ideally located on the crossroads of important trade routes, turned into a big trade and crafts centre. Presently, Yaroslavl is the region’s largest city with a population of nearly 650 000.
