Specialty Museum
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.
