Kostroma Things to Do: 75 reviews and 274 photos
In 1824 - 1827 the two most important architectural pieces were added to the picture of the town center. Both were designed by the local architect P.Fursov and became finishing masterstrokes of the architectural ensemble. Those were the Fire Watch Tower (35 meters high) and the Guard-House.
Kostroma like many Russian towns with a lot of wooden houses suffered serious fire damages. Inside the Tower there used to be rooms for cisterns with water, a stable, living rooms for firemen, and an observation deck on top. Now there's the history museum of fire department inside.
