Travel to Russia. What is famous for Kostroma?

And if you remove shiny cars from the ancient Kostroma Trading Rows, it seems that a row drawn by a pair of white horses will immediately come up to these rows ... And gypsies will jump out of it, and “We have arrived, arrived to us ...” will surround, and the Romals of the luxurious and of the snow-white Paratov-Mikhalkov, and a glass of vodka will be served on a silver tray ... And Paratov-Mikhalkov will dance, and somewhere in the old mansion the heart of Larisa Ogudalova-Guzeeva will shiver somewhere in the old mansion ...

In Kostroma, a unique layout - from the central square of the street diverge like a fan. They say that when Catherine II, who stopped in Kostroma, was asked about the further development of the city, she, fanning herself with a fan at that moment, turned it around and said: “Do it like this!” And so, like a fan, they walked the streets further upwards ...

And here you can walk along the Upper Wilds, get lost in the Lower Wilds and delve into the Borovye Wilds ... These are the names of the streets of a fabulous ancient city.

Welcome to the fairy tale, welcome to the magnificent Kostroma!

Trade rows - Flour, Vegetable, Fish, Dairy ... GUM and TSUM of the XIX century! Than they didn’t trade here - velvet, brocade, muslin, German stockings, wax and frankincense, coffee and tea, writing different sorts of paper, bast shoes, caviar ... Going over them and sometimes you find yourself in a completely different era, in another century. And already the clerk in the cap jumps up to you, grabs you by the sleeve and with the words “Pity for us, sir, drink a cup of tea and look at the goods!” Pulls you into his shop and leaps a stale linen cloth into you. But - alas, alas, alas ... But what exciting stories about the Kostroma merchants are waiting for you!

Next to the Shopping Rows, on Susaninskaya Square, a fire tower is piercing its head with the Kostroma sky, the envy of Nicholas I. Not far another attraction of the city is the beautiful building of the guardhouse, so beautiful that you want to become arrested and be inside ...

The monument to Ivan Susanin on Molochnaya Gora is a Soviet one, but rumor has it that the old monument of tsarist times, which allegedly insulted the feelings of the people, will be restored. While on the site of the royal monument - a memorial sign.

A very unusual monument to Lenin, more precisely, a monument - an ordinary one, but a pedestal - which is clearly not a pedestal! Peer: what do you think was originally intended here? The correct answer will surprise you ...

And here he is, handsome handsome Epiphany-Anastasiin monastery. It was founded by Anastasia, the first wife of Ivan the Terrible, the one through whom the Romanovs are relatives of Rurik dynasty. Here is kept the miraculous icon of the Mother of God Theodore, whose acquisition is full of mysteries. It was in honor of this icon that all the non-Orthodox wives of the Russian tsar-emperors took at their baptism the middle name of Fyodorovna!

1330 Murza Chet, the ancestor of the Godunovs, runs from the Golden Horde to Ivan Kalita in Moscow. Stop and terrible disease. Vision of the Mother of God, Saints Philip and Hypatia. The promise to build a monastery in gratitude for their recovery. Chet, who became a boyar Zachariah, founds the Ipatiev Monastery on the spot of the vision. Here Mikhail Romanov, saved by Susanin, was called to the kingdom, and from here, from the Ipatiev Monastery, went to the Imperial House of the Romanovs, which ended, in a terrible twist of fate, in the Ipatiev House of Yekaterinburg ...

This monastery should be visited by anyone who is interested in the history of the country. Here is our memory ...

Do you know the legend about the invention of cheese? And who brought the cheese to Russia? Or how many varieties of cheese exist? Or the main thing - how to distinguish real cheese from a fake? You will learn all this, because Kostroma is the cheese capital of Russia!

And here you are again in the Shopping Mall! You already know that Kostroma is a cheese: “Susaninsky”, “Ivan Kupala”, “Kostroma”, “Poshekhonsky”. Appreciate the strength to bring it all to the house, because Kostroma is also luxury jewelry, silver filigree, flax and ... amazing Kostroma black salt!

And the Church of the Resurrection of Christ in Debre! Kostroma merchant Kirill Grigoriev once ordered a batch of paint in England, but in one of the sent paint barrels it wasn’t. The barrel was filled with gold! It was to this gold that this beautiful church was rebuilt ...

And also Ostrovsky's gazebo, a monument to the little dog, a reviving Kremlin, a pier with a legendary landing stage, a small but very interesting chapel of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker on the descent ...

Kostroma is a fairy tale, Kostroma is a straw doll, Kostroma is Kupala's bride turned into a mermaid, and a flower is named after them - Ivan da Marya ...

Kostroma - memories,
Historical dreams

The voice of Russian antiquity ...
