City night… The very feeling you walk along the empty streets. Loud silence and dim lights seem whisper out all the secrets yet the night city keeps its mystery. On the occasion of 1005th anniversary of the ancient city of Yaroslavl (Russia) the night creates a different elevated mood. Cosy pleasant atmosphere gives the feeling of safety and warmth.
The hand of God saves Yaroslavl. The city is spiritually rich and generously shares this richness with citizens and guests. One can realize this at night. In the sky we can see numerous crosses on beautiful churches’ and cathedrals’ gold-plated domes. The highlighting of churches bursting into the dark seems to be bringing good news to the people of Yaroslavl. It feels as if one may see an angel hiding behind the light in the cope of night.
Yaroslavl is one of the most ancient cities of Russia. According to the legend it was founded in 1010 by Prince Yaroslav the Wise. The city stretches along the banks of the river Volga and Kotorosl. Yaroslavl is famous for its probably the most beautiful embankment among all Russia’s cities. It is a favourite place of citizens and tourist to have a nice walk.
Every year on the last Saturday of May, Yaroslavl celebrates its birthday. Different entertaining events are organized on the occasion. After the sunset, the dark sky above the ancient city lights with colourful bright fireworks. People from all the parts of the city and even from neighbouring towns come to the embankment to enjoy this festival.
