Why Visit Kostroma

Charming Kostroma is one of the cities located along the Volga River banks. Part of the famous Golden Ring of Russia, Kostroma is of particular interest to a wide audience of travelers due to its wonderful panoramas and a large number of historical monuments.

The first must-see highlight during Kostroma journey is сertainly the Ipatiev Monastery. No doubt that the place has served as the stronghold of Russian history: the Romanovs' reign started exactly within its walls. Right here, at the Ipatiev Monastery, Michael of Russia, the first monarch of the Romanov dynasty was proclaimed a Tsar. And that was a new serious round of Russian history…

Another place you need to tick as "visited" at the Kostroma map is Susanin Square. Named after Ivan Susanin, a glorious Russian hero, the Square became both territorial and logical center of Kostroma. Now the square is a place where major urban festivities and celebrations are held. For example, “Boris Godunov” and “Khovanshchina”, two world-famous operas, were performed right here. Such a fantastic outdoor show attracted both locals and plenty of foreign guests who decided to visit the square on their Kostroma itinerary.

Kostroma historical shopping center, Gostiny Dvor, is a splendid example of provincial Neoclassical trading arcades in Russia. It was a unique example of the XVIII century urban planning. Single-story symmetrical rows of cells influenced the design of Kostroma squares and streets. Coming by Gostiny Dvor, a city dweller could buy a variety of things: from flour and butter to tar and tobacco. The highlight of Russian cuisine, a juicy beverage named “kvass” was also sold there. Now the arcades are still used for their intended purpose: plenty of local cafes and shops are always at your disposal during your Kostroma trip.

Feel interested in Russia and look for some new untried destination? Discover Kostroma and be sure, you won’t stay indifferent.
