Yaroslavl is a Russian treasure. Its wooded areas are filled with animals, birds, babbling brooks and streams and charming glades. Wonder through the white birch trees and the contrasting coral bunches of ashberry trees, taking in the fragrant air.
Aside from the natural beauty of the region, the town is filled with ancient churches and fortresses. Among them are the Church of the Prophet Elijah, best known for the frescoes painted by well known Kostrom masters, Guri Nikitin and Sila Savin.
