Frankly speaking, Kostroma is a surprising city! Here I finished my university and met true friends. There are a lot of small restaurants. Now I live in another city but from time to time I like to visit my favourite city!
The ancient city Kostroma is one of the most beautiful cities in the central part of Russia. It will celebrate its next anniversary in 2012, 860 years since it’s foundation! City center has radial and semiring planning. The streets seem like it has beams which then gather on the main square called “skovorodka” or “frying pan” in English.It’s real name is Susanin Square. Kostroma is famous for its churches. Especially well-known is Ipatiev Monastery. It is situated in the picturesque bank or the Kostroma River. “Skovorodka” draws not only groups of tourists but local youth too. There are a lot of places where you can eat, drink, dance, relax and so on. That’s why I like visiting this marvelous city.
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
