A two-day tour to Yaroslavl & Vyatskoye

Individual either Group Tour

You are invited to spend 1-2 days or a weekend in the ancient city of Yaroslavl, the pearl of the Golden ring of Russia, with a visit to the village of Vyatskoye, which has the title of the most beautiful village in Russia.

The city of Yaroslavl, founded in 1010 and located 250 km northeast of Moscow, is the heart of the Golden Ring of Russia, and it is the only old Russian city, the historical center of which is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

In Yaroslavl, we expect a rich 4 hours driving + 2 hours walking author’s excursion program, which will lead Yegor Parfenkov, one of the best tour guides to Yaroslavl and the cities of the Golden Ring of Russia, world traveler, culturologist, scholar and a great storyteller, whom I know from my last year's tour to Yaroslavl.

We'll walk along the Volga and Kotorosl embankments, we'll see the Church of Elijah the Prophet, the Governor's Palace, the Church of the Nativity, the fortifications of the XVI century, the Arsenal and Znamenskaya towers, the Metropolitan chamber, the Assumption Cathedral, the St. Nicholas Chopped city,  the Church of the Savior on the Gorodu, the famous Volkov’s drama theatre and the Shopping arcades.

We’ll admire the most beautiful panorama of the city overlooking the Strelka (Arrow) foreland. We'll also see the Spaso-Preobrazhensky monastery, the monuments to Afonya (Athos), Yaroslav the Wise, the Roaring Bear. We’ll come to the zero kilometer point of the Golden Ring of Russia.

And at last, we'll visit the only point of Yaroslavl, where you can see all 3 attractions depicted on the 1000 RUR bill.

In the suburbs of Yaroslavl we'll visit the Tolgsky nunnery, founded in 1314, where you can see the miraculous Tolgskaya icon of the Mother of God, one of the most revered images of the Holy Mother of God in.

Russia The village of Vyatskoye is an extraordinary village situated 36 km away from Yaroslavl. Vyatskoye, first mentioned in official record in 1502, was renovated in the early 2000s and today it has the status of "Historical and cultural complex Vyatskoye". 

The village now hosts more than a dozen museums and attracts tens of thousands tourists each year. In 2015, Vyatskoye won the first nationwide competition held by The Most Beautiful Villages in Russia, the Russian equivalent of the Les Plus Beaux Villages de France association.

The world famous Russian opera diva Lyubov Kazarnovskaya has built her house in the village and with her help numerous cultural events are now organised in Vyatskoye.

You'll be amazed looking into the archive of my photos of Vyatskoye.
