Around the Rubleny Gorod

Millennium of Yaroslavl Park

In the run up to Yaroslavl's 2010 millennium celebrations, a park was created at the end of the Strelka formed where the Kotorosl flows into the Volga. Musical fountains were installed in the park which are especially pretty in the evening when they are lit up. At the very tip of the Strelka the Millennium of Yaroslavl Monument was erected. The monument comprises a statue of Yaroslavl the Wise standing in front of an obelisk. On the four corners of the obelisk's base are four statues representing a priest, a soldier, a civilian and a mother and child. Bas reliefs depicting famous events in the city's history also decorate the base of the obelisk.
