24 July 2014 – Thursday: Yaroslavl

Approaching our destination we see many beautiful old buildings and churches on the banks o the river.  We are visiting the city of Yaroslavl.  Founded in 1010, the UNESCO world Heritage Site contains one of the most beautiful early churches.  The Church of Elijah the Prophet has one of the most decorated interiors in all of Russia.  The original interior paintings, frescoes and icons are breathtakingly beautiful.  The nearby old Governors Palace, now a museum house many excellent paintings by Russian Masters.

 

 

All the Best,

Wayne & Dianne
