The history of Kostroma is tightly entwined with the history of the Russian state—it is the home of the Godunov and Romanov dynasties and is where Ivan Susanin performed his great exploits. Ancient Russian architecture has been preserved in the towns of Kostroma, Galich, and Nerekhta. Kostroma is considered to be the Russian capital of jewelery, linen, and cheese.
