Зарайский кремль

Art Museums

Feel the coziness of a small old town wandering around the Kremlin. The historical quarter of Zaraisk has been preserved almost in its original form. However, the trees on the rooftops of former industrial enterprises outside the center also look very nice. Be careful when planning your trip, the Kremlin is closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Коломенский кремль

Historic Sites

Start your morning with a walk in the Kolomna Kremlin, absorbing the scents and atmosphere of the old days. Before us is a real monument of defensive architecture, built by Italian masters. By the way, the size of this Kremlin is not inferior to the Moscow Kremlin. Tired, you can walk to the museum of pastel, having bought sweets on the way.

Дэдис Пицца

Pizza Places, Italian Restaurants, Cafés

Tiny pizza place. Cooking in front of you. It's fast enough and delicious enough. Pleasant lighting, large windows.


Art Museums

A communal apartment in the past. A tribute to Venedikt Erofeev, who once worked here as a loader. Part of the exhibition is dedicated to Soviet life: Indian tea with elephant, perfume "Red Moscow", other attributes. You can return to the real world by using the door of the magic cabinet. An interesting idea of the organizers: one of the artists who won an international competition and received the right to live and create in this art space is responsible for contemporary art here.

Ресторан Лазурный

American Restaurants, Russian Restaurants

On the bank of the Moskva River our short journey ends. Wrapped in a plaid on a summer terrace, we contemplate and wait for the order. Democrat prices, the menu is quite extensive. Well, we should get back to town and rent out the car.
