A World Heritage Site boasting hundreds of architectural monuments, Yaroslavl sits on the confluence of the Volga and Kotorosl Rivers and is renowned for its historical town center. Located some 250 km (150 mi) northeast of Moscow, the city sits as a part of the so-called "Golden Ring," a group of historic towns preserving the country's cultural heritage and prominently featuring quintessentially Russian onion domes. Largely undamaged by Soviet building efforts, which marred other cities with gray housing blocks and characterless government buildings, Yaroslavl serves as a kind of open-air museum, offering visitors a chance to learn about the evolution of Russian architecture and urban planning between the 17th and the 19th centuries. Yaroslavl is in Yaroslavl Oblast. Add Yaroslavl and other Russia destinations to your travel plans using our Russia attractions planning website .
