Russpass will help sports enthusiasts find new running routes and share information with city travelers to plan their independent tours. The service offers new routes in Moscow and Yaroslavl.

This Russpass route runs through the key landmarks of Yaroslavl. Begin you running or walking tour in the city's historical center - Strelka Park where the rivers Volga and Kotorosl join. This is the city's oldest part. The route includes centuries-old landmarks and today's tourist attractions related to historical events. Discover the Chapel of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God opened in August 1997 to commemorate the 385th anniversary of the people’s volunteer corps (militia) led by Kuzma Minin and Prince Dmitry Pozharsky.

Then follow through to Yaroslavl Museum-Preserve housing Transfiguration Cathedral, the city's oldest surviving building. Have a bird's eye view over the city's historical center at the scenic viewpoint.

Explore the Church of Elijah the Prophet and the Assumption Cathedral and follow to the Eternal Fire monument. Finish the tour by the Volga River and visit the Yaroslavl Art Museum.

One more Russpass route opened recently and available includes the most picturesque sites of Moscow. Begin on Universitetskaya Square in front of the main building of Lomonosov Moscow State University. Enjoy the wonderful sites of Lilia fountain and the alley of monuments to scientists.

Follow past the Big Lawn of Moscow State University to Mosfilm Studio. Have a look at the studio's museum featuring film sets, costumes, and filmmaking equipment.

Then follow along Kosygin street to uncover the temple of the Life-Giving Trinity on the Sparrow Hills. Its unique outlook has remained unchanged since the 19th century. The church went down in the history of the 1812 War with Napoleon: Mikhail Kutuzov, the Field Marshal of Russia, prayed here on the eve of the war council. The route ends at the observation deck on the Sparrow Hills, which offers a beautiful view of the city.
