Kolomna Kremlin

Reviewed By Strnnik93 - Montreal

Due to it location at the South-East of Moscow, Kolomna wasn't destroyed during Nazi invasion. It was no bomb shelling and street fights there. Thanks to it, we are able to see old Russian town in a way it should be. Charming and beautiful. Great views. 70 years of communist ruling wasn't as destructive as Second World War, but it d reflected in a tourist service quality. Unfortunately fine tuning is not a strong part of Kolomna.
But you may enjoy a good guide, fascinated with his work.
Kolomna is a great place for a day trip from Moscow.

You definitely must take an excursion option in this museum. The host is bright and great and loves trams and their history. He explains the technical and political reasons and very nice details about every tram he has in his collection.

Museum Pastila Factory

September 3rd, 2011 the first Museum Pastila Factory was opened in a former pastila factory of the merchant Peter Karpovich Chuprikov. Here the process of the production of pastila of the XIX century is open. Here you can visit a dramatized tour show and taste some pastila.

Reviewed By Ashley S - Moscow, Russia

This museum tour provides a live (often hands-on) demonstration of the making of a traditional Russian candy. Staff members are in period costume, and the building is decorated like it might have been in the 1850s. The tour caps off with tea and a tasting of different pastila varieties. Our English-speaking guide Ekaterina was wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable. She stayed with us for the entire afternoon and also led us around the kremlin. All in all, this was one of my favorite excursions into the Moscow region.

Kalachnaya

Reviewed By maria_krasa - Zurich, Switzerland

We had a day in Kolomna and it was very well-planned. First we walked around Kremlin for about 2,5 hours. Then we had a visit to Kalachnaja museum. At the beginning I was afraid that we are too tired for this visit. But it was more a show with tea ceremony than a guided tour. For those who speak Russian it is also interesting because they express some common expressions. We really enjoyed our stay.

Museum of Russian Marshmallow

Reviewed By maria_krasa - Zurich, Switzerland

This museum was the last one in our day-trip to Kolomna. It is again (as in Kalachnaja) more a show. All of us enjoyed it as it was light-hearted and funny. And of course we had a chance to drink tea and try some sweets. It was a great finish of our trip to Kolomna!

Art-Kommunalka Erofeyev and Others Museum-Residency

Reviewed By MarinaKosmakova - Moscow, Russia

It's a funny place to remember the past. When I was a child, my aunt lived in such a room in a flat in Moscow so it was funny to walk along the rooms and see a lot of attributes of the time of Soviet Union. The guide was sweet and showed and talked about past times. It'll be interesting to visit both for natives and for foreigners.

Epiphany Staro Golutvin Monastery

Reviewed By H C - Dublin, Ireland

On the banks of the Moscow river, in the old village. Quiet and scenic. A lovely walk across the pontoon bridge from Kolomna. Under renovation, but an active church with friendly docents. Interesting 17th c. original buildings and old gravestones in the yard. Hours 7am to 6pm. Worth the trek for a pastoral walk to an old village. Great bicycle ride from Kolomna....new paved road.

Museum House of Samovar

Reviewed By NFR90

Nice staffs, the one accompanying our tour was a nice lady, she let us wear the brightly colored traditional Russian costumes and did our own photoshoot all around the place
It is just across the street from the Pastilla Museum.
If you are deciding between these two places, skip this Samovar House tour.
I am not a Russian so I don't really get the hype over this whole samovar thing but I really enjoyed learning about the basic of a Russian family household since this place has a room demonstrating that.

Soap Museum

Reviewed By MarinaKosmakova - Moscow, Russia

Nice shop with a big variety of soap. Prices are high (from 150-200 rub per piece- 80 gr approximately). The same can be bought at hand-maders with a lower price and higher quality. However you can bring it as a gift to your friends. Packing paper is nice

Cathedral of the Assumption

Reviewed By OxanaKsu - Moscow, Russia

Успенский кафедральный собор был заложен в 1379 г. князем Димитрием Донским в честь победы русских войск над Золотой Ордой. Храм двухэтажный, трёхглавый, расписан в 1392 г. Феофаном Греком. В 1672 году хам разобрали (из-за ветхости) и с 1672 по 1682 года возвели новый вместе с шатровой колокольней. Позже храм еще несколько раз претерпевал изменения. В 1929 г. собор был закрыт и разорён, были уничтожены все иконы, Царские врата и захоронения. Собор возвращен церкви в 1989 году. Сейчас храм восстановлен полностью. Зайдите внутрь, посмотрите на красивую роспись и иконостас.
