Description of Ostrovsky Arbour

Ostrovsky Arbour was constructed in 1956 on a site of earth mound left from sky the medieval Kostroma Kremlin (fortress). Defensive walls and towers were removed, but earthworks were left in place. It was named after famous Russian author Aleksandr Nikolaevich Ostrovsky who spent much of his time in his personal mansion in the estate of Shchelykovo near Kostroma.

 

Ostrovsky Arbour despite its name was never visited by a famous Russian writer. He died before it was built, however he loved this place and often spent his time enjoying the view from the mound at Volga river below. Here he created his famous drama works like "The Snow Maiden", "The Forest", "Bride", "The Last Victim" and many others. One of the most popular Russian Soviet movies "Cruel Romance" based on A.N. Ostrovsky drama "Bride" was filmed here. Today gazebo and surrounding Centralny Park or Central Park draws residents of Kostroma on weekends and holidays due to its location and a spectacular view.
