If you have visited Kostroma - this is the main attraction. I will not write about the state of the soul, when we visited the Temple - a private affair of each individual. Besides, there are many interesting things for those who are interested in history and ancient architecture. Be sure to go to the cafe and try "pirozki" and kvas that are cooked by local monks. And visit the market near the monastery to by souvenirs, linen goods and black salt(made only in Kostroma).
