I know you can get the command history in some consoles, but is history for the visited directories stored in a similar way?

@picardo, the command history is not maintained across sessions, only is stored in memory, The most similar to what you ask, is performed by a very-old tool called DOSKey.

DOSKey was part of the old DOS command shell (and still works even in Windows 7!). It provided command-line editing, history functions for recalling commands.
