Yaroslavl is a Volga RIver cruise port and city in Russia, located approx 250 km (160 ml) northeast of the country's capital Moscow. The city is at the confluence of Volga and Kotorosl rivers, and has population around 600,000.

Yaroslavl is one of the 8 cities of Russia's Golden Ring, a group of historic cities located northeast of Moscow which have played a major role in Russian history. The city lies on the north-eastern side of the 'ring' and is the largest in its chain. Whilst Yaroslavl is best known for its architecture, it also features a relatively large repertoire of attractions.

Despite the effects of Russian Civil War and several air-raids during WWII, the city has managed to retain a big part of its 17th, 18th and 19th century substance. This has helped make Yaroslavl recognizable as an architectural monument to the style of Russian Tsardom. The center of Yaroslavl, which covers an area of around 600 ha, has about 140 federally-protected architectural monuments. This ensemble, together with city's Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery has been included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 2005. Despite all this, there are several buildings of architectural merit located outside the city center.

Yaroslavl River Port features an annual import average of about 3.5 million tonnes of freight per year. Climatic conditions allow it to be used for 6 months per year, from May to late October. Yaroslavl River Port caters not only for bigger river cruise ships that stop off in the city during their journey up or down Volga River, but also to regular services that link the city of Yaroslavl with Bakarevo, Breytovo, Konstantinovo, Novye Chentsy and Tolga.
