City `s history
Yaroslavl was founded at the beginning of the 11th century by Kyiv prince Yaroslav the Wise as a fortress city on the right bank of the Volga at the confluence of Kotorosl, where the ancient Russian settlement Medvezhiy Ugol had been located since the 10th century. According to legend, the prince subdued the locals by killing their sacred animal – the bear, the legend of this duel was reflected in the coat of arms of the city. By the middle of the 16th century, Yaroslavl had become an important point of transit trade between Moscow and the countries of the West and East.
The 17th century is golden in the history of Yaroslavl. This is a period of rapid economic growth, the flourishing of culture, the formation of its own style (“Yaroslavl school”) in architecture and painting, the creation of magnificent temple ensembles, which still determine the image of the city. By the middle of the 19th century, Yaroslavl was completely rebuilt according to a regular plan, the ensembles of the Mytny Dvor and the Governor’s House were created. This is how Yaroslavl today turned out – a valuable monument of urban planning, which has preserved the buildings of almost all styles of Russian architecture of the last five centuries.
