The arcaded market Kostroma Reviews
Would have been more fun a hundred years ago Aug 10, 2007
The arcaded market was built in the end of the 18th century at the location where 300 hundred years earlier the Kremlin of Kostroma had stood. There are many different arcades, each arcade was used for trading different kind of goods, like flower arcades, milk arcades, vegetable arcades, tobacco arcades, oil arcades, sweets arcades and fish arcades. Today the general idea of the arcades is no longer in use, the items for sale are mostly household goods and all sorts of food. It’s a pity the old customs are gone here, but then again, it would mostly be nice for tourists.
