Travel Tips for Kostroma

Kostroma’s name origin

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The origin of the town's name is not very clear. I like the story which connects the town's name to an old heathen dancing ritual in which a huge straw doll, which was said to impersonate the awakening of forces of nature in the spring, was used in a ceremony of sacrifice.
The straw doll which in fact was called "kostroma" played the role of symbolic sacrifice to the heathen Sun deity Yarila. The doll would be either set on fire or drowned in the river.

There is also a wonderful modern song “Kostroma” by “the Kupala” folk ensemble which you can hear while watching my 8 min 04 sec HD Video Kostroma Around by car out of my Youtube channel.

Ipat'evsky Monastery. Troizky Temple

by bugulma

Troizky Temple was built in 1650-1652. The painting works was in 1653 and then in 1685, when nineteen masters painted the interior of the temple in one year (very fast for that time). There were many restoration and repair works in 1709, 1744, 1780 and 1803. In 40-s of XIX century, after strong storm, the architecture was backed to its genesis (as it was in XVII century). Great restoration works were in 1911-1912, before 300-years anniversary of Romanovs family as Russian Tsars. Interior is amazing and iconostasis, I think, is the richest I've ever seen in the Russian cities except the main churches of Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Some photos of the interior you can see in my travelogue.

Ipat'evsky Monastery. Romanovs Chambers

by bugulma

The chambers were built in the beginning of XVII century and it was living place for Romanovs family members when they visited the monastery. In the end of XVII century the chambers were made wider. In front of Romanovs Chambers there is a column, which was built in 1839, where you can read all events that are bound up with the monastery (in Russian only :-)).

Ipat'evsky Monastery. Museum

by bugulma

In the Western part of the monastery there is museum. I talked with the personal and they said that city administration told them to leave the monastery this year because Ipat'evsky Monastery is the property of Orthodox Church now. The museum shows exhibits of Kostroma region since XIX century. The most impressive thing for me was these toys of children that were evacuated from Leningrad in 1941-1943 during WWII. All toys made by hand from textile (even inside).

Our Savior Church

by bugulma

Our Savior Church is the part of architectural ensemble of the row of stalls. The church was built in 1792 by Sergey Vorotilov. The bell tower was built in 1794 by Petr and Efrem Vorotilovs as well as Shevelev.
