As a century ago Kolomensloe has not yet lost its charm and still is the all-time favourite place of the Moscowites.
The grand-ducal residency located on the astonishing and breath-taking sky-high turn of the river is considered to be a unique country seat of the Rurik and Romanov dynasties. It’s no coincidence that especially here the chef-d’oeuvre of the hipped stone art of building in Russia - the Church of the Ascension was constructed in the 16th century. And a hundred years later those places were chosen for creation of the Eighth World Wonder - the wooden Palace of the Russian Tsar - Alexey Mikhailovich (Alexey the Most Quiet).
Nowadays the territory of the museum in the open-air exposition includes five active Churches and the unique collection of wooden art of building. Kolomenskoe is not only the preserved territory but a real “time machine” that enables us to travel into the Russian history.
