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.

This is the old part of my native town. At weekends it is quite crowded with people with their children. I advise it for families only in cool weather and during the week. This is a good opportunity to get inside an ancient building and feel the atmosphere of middle ages. Also you can shoot from an arch and see old clothes of knights and ladies.

I heard a lot about Kolomna and finally I had a chance to visit this town. It is a town from a fairytale. The best russian town I've ever visited. We had a very good english-speaking guide Sophie. She is very intelligent, devoted to her town and her job and very modest. It takes just two hours to get there by car. So dont miss it when you are in Russia.

I like the buildings which is just bye the riverThere are castles, churches and old buildings.You can get there by bus or taxi.On the other hand you go there from city by railway whose station is a little far away fromthe place.
If you go to Kolomna you should see that place certainly.

Lovely enclosed (walled) complex, with restored churches, monestary grounds, 19th c. homes. The main cathedral is one of the finest in the region, iconostasis is carefully renovated and maintained. View of the Moscow river is spectacular. The main open square in front of the cathedral sometimes has a stage for special concerts. Open air crafts and children's activities during high season,ax forging, weaving, folk songs and costumed performers. A few "home museums" (no English) record the settlement of the village and WW2 history. Some cafés, street food like cotton candy and popcorn are available....long lines at high season. Famous Kolomna marshmallow treat (pastila) and honey sold inside the walls in souvenir shops. The chapel of the women's' convent has unusual icons (many female saints and stories of women of the bible) ....dress modestly to enter the convent holy sites. Good for strollers and maybe ok for wheel chairs. Just outside main entrance tower is a kolach bakery (stop by just after 10am for fresh kolaches) and kolach museum (no English but great bread). Great for strolling, early morning bicycle visit, kids and sunny day walks. Some portions still under renovation. Limited toilet options. Worth a trip off the beaten path.
