Kostroma Oblast

(2,000+ reviews from top 10 attractions)
Historic Sites Museums Sightseeing
Situated in Central Russia, Kostroma Oblast served as the northern retreat for Muscovite landed gentry in times of Tatar and Mongol invasion. The city of Kostroma is one of the oldest towns in Russia and a chief attraction of the Golden Ring. Its numerous architectural treasures and revived grand monasteries, parts of which have been turned into museums, date back as far as the early 14th century. The area is also famous for its artisans, long-considered master constructors, icon painters, jewelers, blacksmiths, skinners, and weavers. Kostroma soap, weights, and locks can be found in households all over the country. A major center of textile and leather production since the early 18th century and rich in timber resources, this picturesque and densely wooded area is becoming an important region for environmental tourism.
