Kostroma city (Part 2)

Part one: http://russia-insider.livejournal.com/37070.html

As Kostroma is a pretty old city, you can easily find lots of historical places of interest.
Here's for instance a wooden church, which was built without a single nail. Of course this one is not really old, as such buildings can't last for more than 150-200 years.
