Kolomna is one of the oldest and the most picturesque  towns of the Moscow area. It is situated 100 km away from Moscow. It is more than 800 years old and it has a lot of history. The Kremlin towers, churches, wooden houses with intricately carved window frames and merchants’ mansions create the atmosphere of a typical Russian provincial town of the past.

After meeting with a guide at the hotel, you get to the train station to  catch a commuter train (approximately 2 hours) to Kolomna. Upon arrival you take the tram or a taxi to get to the center to explore the historic past.
You will walk around the territory of the Kremlin, built in the 16th century. There are two convents there,  one of which was founded by Ivan the Terrible himself. The spiritual centre of the town is Cathedral Square with its beautiful a view on the place where the Kolomenka river flows into the Moscow river.
Kolomna revives old tranditions and opens unusual museums, among them is “The Museum of the forgotten taste – Kolomna’s Marshmallow”. In the past Kolomna was famous for delicious marshmallow produce. Catherine the Great herself tasted this treat during her visit to Kolomna. In the course of time the recipe got lost and only recently it has been found in the old archives. In this museum you will try the forgotten taste of different kinds of marshmallow as well as learn some interesting information about this sweet.
Another appealing museum  which revived an old recipe is “Kolach”. The kolach is a type of pastry which was widely popular in Russia in the past. The museum is actually a recreated bakery of the old style. During the tour yo will hear the story of  unusual ingridients and the process of making.
