HISTORICAL BACKGROUND SUMMARY In the year of 1152 in order to strengthen the northern border of his principality the lord of Rostov and Suzdal– the princeYuriy Dolgorukiy had laid the foundation of the frontier town Kostroma at the two rivers` confluence– the Volga and the Kostroma. More than once the Kostroma land became a center of the political, cultural and spiritual life of Russia.
