What awaits you

Historic center in the veil of night In three hours you will cover the main sights of Kolomna - the Kremlin and the posad. And all this time you will be accompanied by the "ghosts" of bygone times: Ivan the Terrible and Dmitry Donskoy, Ivan III and Sophia Paleolog, and in the loophole Marinkina tower or in the dark corners of the city, you may even meet Marina Mnishek. Going through Pyatnitsky gate, listen to the voice of the guard and the ringing of the alarm. Go down the Vladimirsky tract and walk along the embankment, where at night the dog secretly descends from the pedestal and, thundering with wooden wheels with iron hoops, carries a barrel of water to the roll, so that the Kolomentians enjoy a fresh roll in the morning and “… do not reach the handle” (we will talk about the origin of this phraseological unit separately !

Kaleidoscope of Kolomna stories You will hear an interesting story about Batu, the son of Genghis Khan Kulkan and the cry of 40 handsome Kolomna men, about the death of the city from the Tatar hordes and its revival, about Dmitry's youth and his greatness on the Kulikovo field. I will also talk about the creation of ancient monasteries, the Kolomna diocese and the revival of the traditions of Orthodoxy on the Kolomna land after the fall of Constantinople. In addition, you will discover the secrets of the birth of Grand Duke Vasily III and the construction of the Kremlin, find out the role of Ivan IV in the formation of the city. And listen to how Old Kolomna was recreated in the post-Soviet era.
