Ostrovsky's Pavilion

The life and creative work of Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky, great Russian playwright, are closely connected with the Kostroma region since his father was born and grown up in Kostroma. Ostrovsky's Pavilion was built on the bank of the Volga River in 1956. It represents a rotunda with eight columns. The pavilion was named so because, according to the legend, Ostrovsky enjoyed having a rest on that spot admiring the view of the Volga when he came to Kostroma from his Shchelykovo estate.
