Our tourists near Ipatyev Monastery, Kostroma imageOur tourists near Ipatyev Monastery, Kostroma

Kostroma is the furthest from Moscow (344 km) and therefore the least visited city of the Golden Ring. It is located on the Volga River, and the high banks offer impressive views of the Volga expanses.

One of the most significant places in Kostroma is the Ipatiev Monastery. It is known as the “cradle of the tsarist dynasty”. Once, it was here that the founder of the Romanov dynasty, Mikhail Romanov, hid from his enemies, while his coronation ceremony took place in the Trinity Cathedral of the monastery.

Subsequently, the royal family often visited the Ipatiev Monastery and presented it with rich gifts. Today, they can be seen in the monastery’s museum.
