Kostroma

(3,400+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Historic Sites Museums Sightseeing
As part of Russia's Golden Ring of historical towns, the city of Kostroma is something of an open-air museum with ties to the Romanov dynasty. View the city's main square market and merchant mansions for hints of its history as an important trading post. Although dating back to the 12th century, the town is best known for hosting royalty throughout the centuries, especially the Romonav tsars, who often visited the Ipatievsky monastery. Now, you too can tour the monastery, as well as the city's cathedral and museums. If you stay the night in Kostroma, enjoy beers from one of the city’s historical bars. Customize your holiday with our Russia trip itinerary maker to create an adventure that suits you.
