For those who want to save preparation timeto travel and dive more fully into the atmosphere and history of the city, I would recommend using the services of a private guide in Kolomna.

Especially with a private guide, you can always agree on a convenient time and day for you.

What to see in Kolomna
The entrance to the Kolomna Kremlin guards the quarter. Everything is as it should be - a form, a stylized wooden booth and a barrier. True, the quarter is still not real, just one of the tourist attractions that have recently appeared in Kolomna. Historically, the Kolomna Kremlin was not only a fortification, but also a harmonious architectural ensemble. Unfortunately, over the years it has declined and remained in a very poor condition until recently. After the restoration, the Kremlin acquired its current, well-groomed and pleasing appearance. In the large territory of the Kremlin, not only the existing monastery, churches, but also residential buildings and even a school have been preserved. You can walk along the paths, presenting yourself as a time traveler, plunge into Russian antiquity and the atmosphere of the county town. On the territory of the Kremlin there is a parking, a cafe, a museum of local lore, souvenir shops and shops. Tourists will be interested in a ride around the Kremlin in an omnibus (horse-drawn carriage). A coachman in a historical costume, he is a guide, tells the story of the cultural landscape around, legends and interesting facts. Such a walk is worth 250 rubles. More about the Kolomna Kremlin.
