South of the River Kotorosyl

Ss Peter and Paul's Church

Located in Petropavlovsky Park is Ss Peter and Paul's church which is unique among Yaroslavl's churches as it was constructed in the architectural style known as Petrine baroque. It was built between 1736 and 1742 and comprises an enormous blue two-storey building with a tall bell tower built on at one end. It looks especially pretty when viewed from across the pond located next to it.
