Visit Kolomna Kremlin to get a glimpse of historic Russian towns and their methods of defense. The large fortress surrounding this small town was built from 1525 to 1531 in an effort to imitate the Moscow Kremlin. Explore the grounds within the preserved area to see the Dormition Cathedral, the Tikhvinsky Cathedral, the Trinity Church, the Cross Cathedral, and the Novo Golutvin and Brusensky monasteries. Originally built from wood, the fortress was reconstructed using brick. Despite this upgrade in material, much of it has been destroyed. Of the 17 original towers, only six remain standing, and only one of four gates still provides entrance to the interior of the fortress. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Kolomna holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kolomna Kremlin and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Worth a day trip from Moscow. Medieval city castle (Kreml), architectural monument. + Unique is the urban development along the Kremlin wall. Very large parts of the historic wall no longer exist today. Between the towers that still exist today, small terraced houses have been built along the line of the wall - unique. + Interesting, open Kremlin + nice view of the Moskva River. + good tourist infrastructure. + traffic-free zones. Downtown along the main street. On the outskirts the river Moskva flows into the river Oka.
  • Beautiful place...musut visit
  • Pure old Russian culture. A must see.
  • Kolomna is a beautiful, cozy, hospitable and welcoming old Russian city with a rich history. At any time of the year, this is a great place where you can spend time with family and friends with pleasure and benefit, learn a lot of interesting things about our history, touch Russian traditions and taste old recipes, enjoy the beauty of Russian architecture and nature.
  • I really liked the territory of the Kremlin, it is large and at the same time very cozy. It’s a pity that the Kremlin wall has not been completely preserved, but only parts of it, but it’s also very interesting to see it “in section”. A walk around the territory of the Kremlin was interesting for both children and adults.
