Overview

September 12, 2009 in Yaroslavl, a monument was solemnly bear, but not simple, but as a symbol of the city. The monument was erected specially for the year to the milestone anniversary (1000 years old town - the legend Yaroslavl was founded by Yaroslav the Wise in 1010). In Yaroslavl, there are other sites that involve the bear, but if there's portrayed just the bears, there is the sculptor was given the task to bear was ferocious as possible. According to historical chronicles known that Yaroslavl was built on the site of a pagan settlement > According to legend, at the time of the attack on the village, came to the aid of the Gentiles bear (or rather bear) and Yaroslav the Wise personally killed the bear, thus making it clear that none of the gods and their assistants will not save the village. After that the village board adopted the Yaroslav the Wise, a settlement on the site of a fortress was built. It was only in 1777, when Yaroslavl was founded viceroyalty, the bear came out of the legends in the arms of the city. To achieve maximum effect from the monument to the organizers recorded the bear's roar, and now from 9:00 to 21:00 of the monument to hear angry, I can even say a terrible roar of a bear. Near the monument is a plaque, a warning about this. Although it is not the first pillar, which I meet with sound, but that was an awesome sound, it is the first time. Monument in Tomsk Fortunately, there seems to be something he is also singing a certain phrase or loses, I do not remember. And monuments mobile phones seem to announce the time and show SMSes. In general, the lack of wonders, but the roar I like best, such as hard and viciously, and without the languid sweetness. The monument was erected next to the museum-reserve is at the intersection of Pervomayskaya and Nakhimson. But the bear's roar clearly audible in all areas of the Epiphany, so that when you're in Yaroslavl, do not miss it.

This is a good thing to check out, not for historical value but just a touristy, memorable thing to do unique to Yaroslavl. It's right in front of a restaurant/bar. If on foot and looking directly at the front of the monastery, it's down the...More
