This is indeed a must for those visiting Kostroma. The Monastery is a historical landmark and an important place for the Russian history. This is where the Ipatiev chronicle was written and where Mikhail Romanov was elected Tsar of Russia in 1613 and thus started the Romanov dynasty.
Right next to the Monastery one can visit a Museum of Wooden Architecture, which is a beautiful and peaceful place by the lake with absolutely outstanding examples of wooden architecture well preserved.
