Description of the Yaroslavl Arrow

Yaroslavl Arrow is a name for peninsula that sticks out into Volga river. It is the original location of medieval Yaroslavl that became known as a Chopped Town. Original town, its buildings, city walls and churched were made from local forest that was chopped down by Yaroslavl residents and hence the name. Yaroslavl Arrow was surrounded by water on three sides, thus serving as a natural defense against enemy attacks. Archeological digs were carried out in the 19th and 20th century. One of the most important is a boulder on the site where Yaroslav the Wise founded the city in 1010. Six churches and several administrative buildings stood here. Government buildings were demolished in the 19th century and the last historic church was finally blown up by the atheists during Soviet period. Currently it served as a public park with trees, fountains and several historic monuments.
