Full description
The guide will meet you at the hotel, from where, depending on the location of the hotel, you will go by foot or by public transport to the central part of Kostroma. Here you will hear unforgettable stories about the legends and stories associated with the names of the Kostroma streets.

You will walk along the beautiful embankment of the Volga River and take incredible photos against the background of architectural monuments of the 13th-17th centuries. During your tour at Kostroma, you will have the opportunity to see the process of turning flax kernels into fabric, and even have the opportunity to make such a flap yourself in the flax museum. An experienced guide will take you through all the stages of growing this crop, and tell you how the fabric was bleached and how it was painted.

You will then go up to the observation deck to see the city at a glance and to examine all the beauty of the Volga river and Kostroma landscapes. Discover one of the cities of the Golden Ring of Russia, which was first recorded in the chronicles of the year 1213, but historians believe it could have been founded by Yury Dolgoruky more than half a century earlier in 1152.
