Yaroslavl was founded in approximately 1010 at the confluence of Volga and Kotorosl Rivers. In 1218, after long civil strife, the city gained a status of the capital under Duke Yaroslavl, who managed to unite most principalities of Russia in one state. First stone buildings were built immediately to claim city's leading role. By 1463, Yaroslavl fell under the influence of Moscow, and it was never to regain its former power. Though it remained one of the largest trade centers in the 16th and 17th centuries, attracting wealth and a large population of skilled craftsmen. Today, the city of 1.5 million people, is among top destinations of the famous "Golden Ring" of Russia. It has a lot to offer beginning with its more than 20 churches dating back to the 12th century. Theater, classic music, circus, folk shows are at your service daily.
