Kolomenskoye

Kolomenskoye Village is located on the high right bank of the Moskva River 11 kilometers south of the Kremlin. Even in times of Prince Ivan Kalita (1336) there was famous sovereign patrimony. Since the reign of the Grand Prince Vasily 3 (1 third 16 cent.) till the end of 17 century palace in Kolomenskoye was suburban residence of the rulers of Russia.

In 1918 – 19 cent. palace complex was lost its importance and gradually destroyed. In 1923 there was organized architectural reserve, which included in UNESCO World Heritage List.

In 1960 the village included a part of Moscow, and now you can easily reach here by subway.
