  • Here, as in other popular Museum of Kolomna (kalachnoj Museum) tours are held in the format of a stylized presentation. Yes, and the museum itself is a wonderful antique styling: everywhere samovars, candlesticks, and other attributes of 19-century interior, all staff dressed as girls age appropriate hairstyles. The museum tour lasts about an hour. By the beginning of the new hours is going to a new team (so if you come, for example, in half, will have to wait). The group is divided into two parts. First half tell about the history of pastel and another watching view. Then the group change. The submission, by the way, is constantly updated, with words by Museum staff. We were at one in summer-explanations of Pushkin and his Ladies-peasant woman. Curious enough. During the excursion you will, of course, offer the opportunity to taste different types of paste. You can buy them after the tour here in the shop at the Museum. Marshmallow sticks packed in marvelous gift boxes. I want to buy it just because of them. Even next to the Museum there is a small courtyard with tables on the street: you can drink tea with fruit candy. And still buy postcard stamps and to sign it on one of the tables pen and ink. Mailbox to send here too, naturally. And cards exactly reach the addressees. I tested!

  • Were on view "Katen'kin Garden". Particularly liked the second part, which led Marina. Generally it is a theatrical performance with the actors instead of the guides. Pastel tasting with tea, it is a pity that not hot. Spent an unforgettable hour. Evening snow Kolomna. Paslila are available in the market, a bit expensive. 200 USD for 60 grams (the cheapest). But diverges rapidly. Liked cakes for the dancers (gave to try), but also stopped the price-1500 for 150 Gr. But in General, a great place, even showed a bit of shadow theatre. As if pereneslts' in another century, one of our users asked the man: Blu. Unusually!
