What awaits you
The history of the Kremlin and its cathedrals On a walk through the accessible territory of the complex, you will learn about the very first Kremlin, built in the 14th century, and the fortress restored later, which played an important role in the life of Kostroma, more than once withstanding the siege of invaders. I will tell you about the fire that destroyed the citadel, the cathedrals of the Assumption and Epiphany restored in the 18th century, and the terrible decisions of the Soviet regime in the 30s, which sacrificed priceless architectural and religious monuments for the sake of the park of culture and recreation. You will also hear an extraordinary story about the monument to Lenin, erected on the pedestal of the monument in honor of the Romanov dynasty. And all this together will be an occasion to talk about the incredible historical paradoxes of Russia
Revival of the temple complex You will visit the territory where they are working on the reconstruction of the Orthodox shrine, see the site of archaeological excavations and learn how the complex process of reconstruction of the monument takes place, about which only old photographs and a drawing were made before the destruction of the cathedral in a hurry. In conclusion, I will invite you to the headquarters of the team of specialists involved in the restoration of the architectural complex, and over a cup of tea I will tell you about the current stage of construction.
