The quaint Historical City of Totma is situated on the River Sukhona and much of its history is connected with its location on this river which opened the city to trade from the west. The former wealth of the city's merchants can still been seen today by the surviving houses and churches they commissioned, including examples of the church architectural style which has become known as Totma baroque.
