Description of the Volga Embankment

Volga Embankment of Yaroslavl was constructed on May 1825 by funds provided by Emperor Alexander I. It was designed by a civil engineer Hermes. Volga Embankment was formed from large boulders covered by earth. In 1840's a first round gazebo was added. Local legends claim that its construction was inspired by Masonic ideology and originally was intended as a "temple of friendship and love". Several pavilions were added later along Volga Embankment. Additionally Church of the Nativity was also built here. After the conclusion of the World War II returning veterans on volunteer bases decided to decorate Yaroslavl Volga Embankment with trees, flowers and various bushes.
