Yaroslavskaya Oblast'

Yaroslavskaya Oblast's area is about 36.4 th.sq.km, and its population rounds about 1 451th. people.

The capital of this region is Jaroslavl' that stands about 250km from Moscow.
Jaroslavl' is 123km south away from Pereslavl'-Zalesskiy.

Yaroslavskaya Oblast' borders with mnay other regions in western Russia.

The trajectory I made to come here was from the region of Vladimirskaya Oblast'.

I made a day trip from Suzdal passing Yur'yev-Pol'skiy still in Vladimirskaya Oblast' and further more i reached the ancient town of Pereslavl'-Zalesskiy, founded back in 1152 by the Prince of Suzdal Principality Yury Dolgoruky, who also founded some other Golden Ring towns.

All the towns and this amzing circuit of the Golden Ring its just amazing and when driving, gets full of nice and undiscovered surprises.

My pages in towns and vilages in this region are available here on VT just a click away on the following links:


Nothing much exists around Kabanskoye, just an old house with no more than 100 years old which now is just lost in the middle on the field looking cars passing everyday.
It seems this house as been trying to be recovered to turn itself into a religious house like an orthodox church.


There are about 50000 habitants in this small provincial town. There are a few interesting buildings to visit in this town and a beautiful monasteries, the monastery of St. Nikita where he is burried and where his sacrifice tools are held also, and also Goritsky monastery is worth a visit.
Pereslavl was founded back in 1152 by the Prince of Suzdal Principality Yury Dolgoruky


Ryazantsevo is located on the Yaroslavskaya Oblast' region and its just a small village which has a train station, serving train services to all the nearby villages. For this is gets a bit more importance than the surounding villages. There are a fwe number of very traditional painted wooden houses on the way passing this small village.


Yelizarovo is located on the Yaroslavskaya Oblast' region and its just a small village with two old religious buildings which I think are no earlier than the 18th century. Very interesting to find these out lost in the middle of the countryside.

Still you can surf this little introdution I made on the region and find in a short and quick way what is there to see that I visited.
