Kolomenskoe Estate

Set in idyllic riverside parkland, Kolomenskoe was the favourite summer residence of Ivan the Terrible and was also popular with Tsar Mikhail I (1596–1645). Both leaders made improvements, but it was Tsar Alexei (1629–76) who decided to build his “country Kremlin” here. A fine wooden palace, with an eclectic ensemble of buildings and 270 lavishly furnished rooms, was created in 1667. After Alexei’s death the palace fell into disrepair and was demolished by Catherine the Great (1729–96). Today the estate draws Muscovites, who come to picnic, sledge and attend festivals in the grounds.prac_infoAndropova Prospekt 39 • 499 614 8880 • Metro: ...
