What awaits you
Wooden miracle on the outskirts of the city In a quiet and cozy place in the bend of the Igumenka River, you will be transported 200 years ago and find yourself among the masterpieces of the Kostroma Museum of Wooden Architecture. We will tell you about how the museum was created, what role the “Kostroma Sea” played in this, and how the museum is connected with grandfather Mazai. You will stroll along the semblance of a one-row village street, looking at peasant buildings - from a poor house to a luxurious tower reminiscent of an Alpine chalet. We will help you to distinguish a hut from a house, to understand the variety of "prichelin", "chickens", "towels" and "pharaohs" and to imagine the everyday life of wealthy peasants
Temple architecture without a single nail In addition to peasant houses on the territory of the Kostroma Museum, there are churches and chapels that are unique and unlike each other. But these buildings also have something in common - they were all erected without a single nail: the two-story Ilyinsky Church, and the chapel of an unusual shape, and the Church of the Savior, picturesquely towering like a ship over the bank of the Igumenka River
Immersion in everyday life of the 18th - 19th centuries You can get acquainted with the life of peasants of past centuries not only from the outside, but also from the inside. In some houses, we will visit ethnographic exhibitions that will help you imagine how the potter's family lived, how the peasant children dressed and played. We will compare the living conditions of artisans and well-to-do timber merchants, consider felling stones, spinning wheels, torches and other authentic household items.
