What awaits you
Legends of the central street Ancient Kolomna was located at the intersection of water and land roads. And the ambassadorial tract ran along today's October Revolution street. We will walk along it. You will learn about the ties of Russian cities with the countries of the East and understand why Kolomna was of great commercial importance. Here we will talk about handicrafts and find the former settlements of craftsmen. And I will also talk about the largest enterprise and the transformation of the merchant Kolomna into an industrial one: both the world's first motor ship and the Crimean bridge in Moscow were assembled here
4 holy and beautiful places In Kolomna, many domes aspire to the sky: on this excursion you will see those interesting temples that are rarely included in sightseeing routes
- Staro-Golutvin monastery will immerse you in the atmosphere of Russia in the 14th century. You will hear how the former robbers became righteous monks. In the towers and fences you will see the handwriting of the great architect Matvey Kazakov. You will learn about the historical reconciliation of the two princes and about the hidden temple, which was laid out by the hands of St. Sergius of Radonezh.
- Church of John the Baptist on the Settlements - the oldest stone building not only in Kolomna, but in the entire Moscow region. You will see Kolomna marble and a unique bas-relief - Batu's seal depicting a mythical basilisk.
- Epiphany Church in Goncharnaya Sloboda - living history of the city. The only one of the Kolomna shrines that escaped desecration during the Soviet persecution. Here we recall Sophia Palaeologus, admire the paintings of the 18th century and talk about Saint Philaret, who had a profound influence on the church and secular life of Russia in the 19th century.
- Church of St. Nicholas on Posadi - an elegant building, it is a monument to the entrepreneurial spirit of the Kolomna merchant people. The writer B. Pilnyak, who lived near this temple, compared it to a firebird. I will draw your attention to the details of the architecture and explain their symbolism.
