From humble to luxurious, see the rich collection of structures at Museum of Wooden Architecture and experience Russia as it once was. Using wood as the primary building material has a long tradition in Russia, which this open-air museum preserves by displaying the authentic, furnished houses, windmills, and churches transported here from all over the Kostroma region. The woodworking technique behind some of the buildings is so advanced that they are put together without a single nail.

  • Plunge into the life and atmosphere of the Kostroma 18-th and the beginning of the 19-th century. Was three times and all winter, but no doubt, the summer is also very beautiful.

  • surprising, as it was before people could build all without a single nail. Beauty is unreal! Immersed in the old completely. Liked that you can go into the houses and see what was the decoration of the earlier.

  • It was interesting to stroll through the streets of the old village, go to the homes, look like an everyday life of the people living in the Kostroma province. For the most part decoration and houses alike. Someone more to someone smaller. When you get into such small houses, I was immediately reminded of fairy tale Father Frost (morozko) (I was in the winter, feeling even more). Workers in small houses usually are bored sitting around, so be dobrozhelatelnee and speak to each other with them, then they will tell you about the House, life is not worse than a guide. Clearly this place is worth a visit, especially with children, but better in the summer, in the winter, chilly.
