I will be visiting Yaroslavl which is an old, walled city about 155 miles NE of Moscow. The population of the city is about 650,000. It is on the Volga river. I'll also be visiting the smaller city of Uglich which is due west of Yaroslavl.

The temperature now in Yaroslavl is 26 degrees Fahrenheit - which is simlar to what the temperature is in Washington, DC.

The most important church in the city is the Saviour Monastery Cathedral which was built early in the 16th century and is shown on the right, above.
