Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve, Moscow

4.7
Situated just a short drive southeast of Moscow's city center, Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve combines history and nature. Formerly a rural estate developed as a summer retreat for the wealthy grand princes of Muscovy, this open-air museum contains both authentic and reconstructed historical buildings. The complex notably includes a 16th-century church built to commemorate the birth of Ivan the Terrible. Constructed of white stone, the church significantly departed from Byzantine building tradition by incorporating an octagonal body and a tiny dome. Other notable structures within the complex include a log cabin built for Peter the Great and a reconstruction of a wooden palace famed for its fairytale roofs.

One-close to the Metro station Kashirskaya "from this entry easier to go to the Palace of Alexei Mikhailovich.

  • Very beautiful place for walks and dives in the multi-year Russian history. Summer and winter Kolomenskoye equally attractive. In the wooden Palace of Alexei Mikhailovich exhibitions, as well as the interiors of the Palace. In small izbushkah-Café in the Park you can eat tasty Russian food.

  • Free Park, there are actually a lot of historical buildings, and it's also convenient to ride here. In the vicinity of the red wall, the subway can be reached without a change of the bus. It takes about half a day to stroll through a history of churches and other historical buildings. The pure white building is very beautiful and gives you a different sense of the city center building. In addition, the visitors will be relatively small, many are locals, winter to see a lot of locals in the skiing and other co-curricular movement.
