Naturally, during a visit to Kolomna, we wentin the local Kolomna Kremlin, especially since all the attractions are located nearby and you can get to them through the territory of Krem. We didn’t take a tour, but just walked along the streets and along the wall and enjoyed the good weather, so I’m not going to tell anything interesting about the Kremlin, let them tell me pictures.

Walk through the Kolomna Kremlin

You can enter the Kremlin from many sides, becausethere is little left of it, one wall, and several towers. On its territory there are two female monasteries, the Assumption Cathedral and several temples. In addition, there is the Museum of local lore, cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops.

I was most interested in the streetLazhechnikova, she is just inside the Kremlin. Infrequently you will meet your surname on the city signs, Kolomna is an exception. By the way, the street is very neat, framed by beautiful building facades. True, the rest of the territory of the Kremlin is not inferior to it, green and well-groomed. And some village houses are straightforward role models, just so I would like the Russian village to look, I would be the first to go there to live.

On Kolomna itself, outside the walls of the Kremlin, we barely walked; literally we walked only along Old Kolomna until The marshmallow museum and all In the warm summer weather the desolation and badly battered buildings look less, but in the winter and in cloudy weather, I think everything is different.

Historical reference

The vast territory of the Kolomna Kremlin accommodatesmany historical buildings, including churches and monasteries, residential buildings. In the XVI century, the Kremlin was built as one of the largest and most impregnable fortresses of its time and was intended to protect the Moscow kingdom from the raids of Kazan and Crimean Tatars. After the construction of the stone walls, the Kremlin did not succeed in taking the Kremlin. True, during the Time of Troubles, the Tushino thief detachments were still able to penetrate Kolomna, but not because of a successful assault, but because of betrayal. According to one of the versions, the construction of the stone Kolomna Kremlin was led by the Italian architect Aleviz Fryazin (Old), who also took part in the construction of the Moscow Kremlin. An indirect confirmation of this hypothesis is some Italian architectural details of the Kolomna Kremlin. The Kolomna Kremlin had 16 towers (three of them were passes) and two gates. One of the towers of the Kremlin is called Marinkina. According to legend, Marina Mnishek was imprisoned in her until her death.

Since the 18th century, the Kremlin has long lost itsmilitary and defensive significance, was almost completely disassembled by the inhabitants of Kolomna on building material. The fortress was only partially preserved, but was later restored. Today, the Kremlin is one of the main tourist attractions of Kolomna.
