My native town is Kostroma. It is a wonderful place to live in. Kostroma is one of the cities on the well-known tourist route “the Golden Ring of Russia”. Kostroma is a small provincial town with a glorious historical past. It was founded in 1152 by Prince Yury Dolgoruky. For several centuries the town was performing the role of a fortress.
Kostroma is famous for the Ipatievsky monastery. It is the main treasure in Kostroma region. The monastery was founded at the end of the 13th century by Chet – a legendary noble tatar. The main historical event took place in the monastery in March 1613 when Mikhail Romanov agreed to rule Russia and was enthroned there. The history of the Romanov dynasty began in Kostroma, that’s why the city is called “the cradle of Romanovs’ House”. The Ipatievsky monastery was visited by many of the Romanov dynasty, including the last Russian tsar Nikolai the Second. The monastery represents a wonderfully preserved ensemble of buildings and structures of the 16th – 19th centuries: fortress’s walls and the bell tower, the Trinity cathedral with the wonderful frescoes, Romanovs’ Chambers.
You can’t but visit the Epiphany convent. You can see the miracle working icon of the Mother of God ‘Feodorovskaya’ there. The icon is considered to be the patroness of Kostroma and the holy image of the Romanov dynasty.
Kostroma is associated with Russian Snow maiden, Snegurochka. Snegurochka’s story was written by Alexander Ostrovsky in Kostroma region. Kostroma is also considered to be the jewelry capital of Russia, and for centuries the city’s jewelers have been creating gold and silver jewelry. This year we’re going to celebrate the 860th anniversary of our city.
If you visit Kostroma, you’ll always dream of coming back here.
