Congratulations to our newest Tour Tuesday winner, Sergey Shubkin, for his fascinating tour of the tourist complex “Vokzal” Kostroma Cheese Museum & Hotel in Russia.
Sergey beautifully-captured this homestead location, showcasing vibrant colors with five levels on Google Street View. The tour’s connections are fluid as you walk through this farmhouse-style complex. The panoramas are clear and concise and every nadir is patched seamlessly.
The complex was created along the “Golden Ring of Russia,” a tourist route built through interregional cooperation and development, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017.
As the region is known as “the cheese capital of Russia,” the location features a unique cheese restaurant, a museum of the history of Kostroma cheese making, as well as a cheese themed hotel / hostel.
Guests who visit this tourist complex can take a tour of the “Milk Mountain” cheese hall, learn about the historical Kostroma “Cheese Factory” in the Museum, and dine in the extravagant Baroque-style hall of the Romanov dynasty.
The location also holds tastings of various Russian cheeses, drinks and jam, and classes which feature the fine art of painting wooden cows.
