This is a somewhat difficult place to rate, as your experience will depend on the weather. This is a wonderful walk along the Volga river when the weather cooperates. The Embankment runs for a very long ways, probably further than most people would care to stroll. Great views of the river on one side, and the museums and homes on... More

A lovely proper Russian city of approximately 600,000 people which is ideal for a visitor to see hoe Real Russians live. Not too touristy.

The embankment is a great place to stroll along the River Volga. There is much to see and enjoy along the walk. There are parks, gardens, churches, and restaurants. The scenery along the embankment is beautiful and you will want to take lots of pictures. Plan on spending a few hours discovering the embankment in Taroslavl.

We have walked here on a sunny September day and a snowy March day - both were beautiful. The views of the frozen Volga were stunning and all the church domes are beautiful

This is really beautiful place especially in summer. There are two embankments (levels) -lower and upper. The problem is that there not too much cafes and bars nearby. But anyway I suppose that everyone we'll enjoy the views and atmosphere staying here.
