In 1010 Yaroslav the Wise turned this trading post on the Volga into a fortified city, the oldest town on the Golden Ring. An independent principality, it became a prosperous city in the 17C endowed with many stone buildings and churches thanks to gifts from its merchants. Every street corner seems to bear witness to this illustrious past, all of which with the majestic Volga, so indissociable with the town's charm, flowing in the background.
