Kostroma is a wonderful historic city in central Russia not far from Moscow. It is a part of the Golden ring of the Russian historic towns. It was the third largest city in Russia after Moscow and Yaroslavl in the XVII century.

    What a fascinating place. I so wish that we could also travel with our doggie everywhere, but unfortunately RSA is not yet that doggie friendly

    The Ipatiev Monestary is a wonderful site to behold. It looks like from the videos and comments you had a great trip and the dogs like to get out to see the world. Great presentation

    Great page Sergey! Unfortunately, I didn't see so much when I was there with that Russian tour group. Like the 4-legged locals :)))

    Great new page here. The "Bier Stadt" seems to serve very German dishes. Did Hotel Azimuth make up the prices for dogs? I even thought about visiting Kostroma during my stay in Moscow last October, but realised that it is to far for just a daytrip.
