Photo and description
One of the most beautiful sights of the city of Kostroma is Ostrovsky's pavilion. It is located on the banks of the Volga River, not far from the river station.
Ostrovsky's pavilion was built in 1956. It is installed high above the river, on an embankment that has survived from the ramparts of the old Kostroma Kremlin. The pavilion in its architectural forms is similar to the old park and garden pavilions, once erected in Russian estates. The gazebo contains seven columns.
If you climb the stairs and find yourself in the gazebo, you will see a magnificent view of the Volga. The unique beauty of Russian nature, the bewitching solemnity of the landscape will captivate you to such an extent that you simply cannot immediately leave here, and you will enjoy this marvelous landscape for a long time. It was also exactly Alexander Nikolaevich Ostrovsky who stood here for a long time and admired this magnificence. It is known that he has never been to this very arbor. But, visiting his family estate Shchelykovo, he rested in this very place and considered it one of the best views.
The life and creative path of Alexander Nikolaevich Ostrovsky is inextricably linked with the Kostroma land. The city of Kostroma served as the prototype for most of the Volga cities in the island plays. And the grateful descendants considered it fair to name the gazebo after their favorite playwright.
Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky's talent was fully revealed in the Shchelykovo estate. Here were created his famous works, such as "Dowry", "Forest", "Wolves and Sheep", "The Last Victim", the fairy tale "Snow Maiden". Currently, in the village of Shchelykovo, the State Memorial and Natural Museum-Reserve of A.N. Ostrovsky "Shchelykovo", and the writer himself was buried in the village of Nikolo-Berezhki.
The Drama Theater in Kostroma is named after the great playwright. It was founded in 1808, and for more than 2 centuries has been pleasing the audience with its performances.
Ostrovsky's pavilion is also known for the fact that it was “filmed” in the film “Cruel Romance” based on the play by A.N. ... Ostrovsky's "Dowry".
Today Ostrovsky's gazebo is one of the main attractions in Kostroma. The townspeople love to come here and bring their relatives, friends, guests to this place.
