Yaroslavl lies at the intersection of several major highways, railways, and waterways. The city is said to have been founded in 1010.

In the 17th century it was Russia's second largest city, and for a time (during the Polish occupation of Moscow in 1612), the country's de facto capital.

Today, Yaroslavl is an important industrial center (petrochemical plant, tire manufacturing plant, diesel engines plant and many others).
