Kolomna Kremlin, Kolomna
(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Kolomna Kremlin a part of your Kolomna vacation plans using our Kolomna holiday planner.

  • Beautiful fortress in good condition, good walk along the ramparts. In the summer there are sometimes things: pageant (middle age)-archery

  • I haven't seen such: vrozhe and the barrier is, entry is limited, but at the same time, ordinary people live there. You can buy an old House and live in it inside the Kremlin, provided that the outside won't be any alterations to a dwelling maintained its historical appearance. And you can build a new House, but it must also be designed in the style of the Kremlin. A cozy place for a stroll.

  • my family came to Kolomna for a weekend. It is with great pleasure that visited the Kolomna Kremlin. Gladly listened to church choir, visited the fair of products made by hand. Unfortunately small shops were closed, but we visited the bird market, where it sold cockerels and hens, Guinea fowl, rabbits, it was fun.
