You will see the history of the city through the 1 h 30 m walk — from a small Merya settlement to the regional center. Discover local crafts and brands; find out how the city attracted Russian tzars; meet the famous Kostroma people.
You will visit Susaninskaya Square with its beatiful fire tower, walk along the trading galleries of the 18th century and the city market, admire the Volga river from the Ostrovsky pavilion, see monuments with an interesting history: to Y. Dolgoruky, to I. Susanin, to V. Lenin.
It's not a classic tour — it's a kind of a dialogue with tourists. We use a lot of illustrations to help you to discover more city details.
