    Museum of wooden architecture "Kostromskaya Sloboda". What say? Primarily impressed. Lots of trees, ponds with the ability to ride a boat places where you can eat outdoors, archery, see the work of a blacksmith and simply the blossoms fresh air and quiet just even photographing. Unfortunately for the right to take a need to purchase a ticket. Worth 50 rubles for one camera installed on the territory of the House Master of Yemelyan Stepanova (1813) with (you can tell) autographed Wizard.)) Who will be in the beautiful city of Kostroma, be sure to visit this site. you enjoy.))

    Classic example how abroad can enhance anything, everything nice cabins patched, the old church, the pond, one thing is positive if it is visited in good weather gives serenity, in case of rain ⛈ hatred goes up, if you do choose the tours you exclude this you will not miss anything
