City of Kostroma (part 1)

I've decided to post some of my old pictures.

Kostroma.

Wiki entry

An ancient town actually, just a little bit younger then Moscow. Situated some 200 miles from the capital. Kostroma is a part of a Golden Ring of historical cities and attracts tourists with ancient churches, monasteries and general architecture.
I lived in Kostroma when I was a kid in late eighties. Nowadays Kostroma is in a pretty bad condition, well, there may be some changes occurred since 2005, when I was there for the last time, but I have some doubts about that.
The main problems of the city as far as I could figure out are unemployment rate and low city budget.
In the first part of Kostroma picture story I would like to show some blocks which are rarely visited by tourists, who come to the city.
