Kineshma, Volzhsky Boulevard
This is one of the most beautiful boulevards on the Volga and the trademark of Kineshma – the place, where natural, architectural and historical sights of the ancient merchant town meet on the high bank of the Volga.
Citizens and tourists have long come here to relax from the worries of the day and enjoy the picturesque views. In the nineteenth century, prototypes of the heroes of Ostrovsky's plays and the greatest dramatist himself walked along this embankment.
Almost every building on the Boulevard is a landmark. The Ostrovskiy Theatre of Drama is situated here, the mansion of the merchant Shemyakin, the estate of the manufacturer Mindovskiy and the main church of the town, the Transfiguration Church are also there.
