Description

Kolomenskoe is an area in the south of Moscow which served as a residence for Russian grand princes and tsars for many centuries. Today, it is home to the Kolomenskoe Historical, Architectural and Natural Landscape Museum Reserve. Its unique collections of treasures, art objects, and authentic household items attract thousands of visitors yearly. The park covers an area of about 390 hectares and regularly serves as a venue for exhibitions, historical reconstructions, fairs, and festivals. The museum opened in Kolomenskoe in 1923; at that time, it housed exhibitions of Russian arts and crafts.

In Kolomenskoe, you can forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. The alleys and partially preserved tsar’s gardens take visitors back in time to the 16th and 17th centuries and help them understand a lot about their history.
