You will learn about local cuisine and see the corners of the city where merchants traded in Kostroma delicacies. We will visit the cheese market where you can taste the local cheese. Then, in Ipatievskaya Sloboda, we will visit the only sausage museum in Russia, where we will talk about the history of the product, reveal the secret of the real Doktorskaya, and discuss what role sausage has played in Russian politics
We eat like a merchant At the end of the walk, we will stop at the Rastegai tavern-museum: you will find yourself in a 19th century “restaurant” and taste the Kostroma pie served in the best traditions of merchant clubs.
