The locals are proud of this structure, although nothing special about them. This is, almost any Russian city. In addition, the state of this building is very, very dire. Do not spend more than 5 minutes here.

The trade rows are a good place to go for souvenirs, or for fresh fruits, vegetables, and snacks. A nice place to wander and learn about Kostroma's history.

One of the things I would highly suggest seeing while in Kostroma. These trade columns have lots of shops and their design is intriguing. I haven't seen any other marketplace looking like this. Many arches create perfect photo opportunities.
