Creation history

The monument-stele was established in 2010 on the territory of the Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Yaroslavl in honor of the thousandth anniversary of Yaroslavl. The main idea of the monument became the picture of the famous Russian painter V.I. Nesterenko “Oath of the prince Pozharsky”. It was made because in 1612 within the few months Yaroslavl became a capital of Russia while Moscow was occupied by Polish interventionists.
