The Cathedral Park is to the south-west from the Ryazan Kremlin. There is a deep moat between the Kremlin and the Cathedral Park. The moat is spanned by the Glebovsky bridge. The Cathedral Park itself is divided into two parts: the central part near the Kremlin and the part running along the embankment not far from the Church of the Transfiguration on Yar.
From the city you can get in the Cathedral Park through the Triumphal Gate (also known as the Propylaea) from the Cathedral Square. The monument of Prince Oleg is on the Cathedral Square. Prince Oleg ruled over Ryazan at the end of 14 century, at the time of the Battle of Kulikovo. From the Propylaea a straight alley leads to the Glebovsky bridge and the entrance to the Ryazan Kremlin.
In 1995 a chapel devoted to the 900th anniversary of Ryazan was built near the main alley in the center of the Cathedral Park. The main events from the history of the city was engraved on the bronze plates on the sides of the chapel.
On the steep bank of the Trubezh, within the Cathedral Park, you can visit the Church of the Transfiguration on Yar. The monument of Sergey Yesenin, famous Russian poet born in Konstantinovo, is near the church. There you can also see the steles installed in memory of the soldiers of the War of 1812, as well as the heroes of the Civil War (after the revolution of 1917).
The Church of Elijah the Prophet is near the Glebovsky bridge. It was erected in 1699 but was then rebuilt many times. In 1940 the church was closed and its building was given to the city administration. In the 1990th it was returned to the church but now it looks little like a church. Today the building is occupied by the offices of Ryazan eparchy.
