Коломенский кремль

Historic Sites

Let's start our day by getting to know the wonderful old town of Kolomna. The Kolomna Kremlin is a reduced exact copy of the Moscow Kremlin, everyone should see it!

Успенский кафедральный собор


On the territory of the Kremlin we will walk along the Cathedral Square, where you can enjoy the majesty of famous churches and cathedral: Assumption Cathedral, Tikhvin Church, Church of the Holy Cross and the air church of the New Golutvin Monastery.

Богородице-Рожденственский Бобренев Монастырь


On the opposite bank of the river there is the Bobrenev Monastery. There are very few tourists there, and for nothing - it is the oldest monastery near Moscow. I strongly advise you to stop and take pictures exactly from the side of the monastery: from there you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the ancient Kolomna, because the monastery stands on a hill and from there the whole city is like on a palm!


Bath Houses

After immersion in the history of our country we go to an agricultural farm. Did you know that we grow snails? Now you can not only see the snail kingdom, you can try them: master class in snail preparation with a glass of champagne. The farm also breeds unique goats of Zaanen breed from which milk is used to make extraordinary cheese - you will also be shown a master class on cheese making! A visit to the farm ends with an open fire lunch and herbal tea from a samovar.

La Ferme de Reve

To complete the day with a maximum dive into the French Provence - we go to the Castle! We have a copy of one of the Chateaux of the Loire or Provence in the Moscow region! Everything, from the interior to the nature speaks about calmness and silence. Dine in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy fresh farm produce. The restaurant is prepared with products of its own production. I advise you to try the original salad "Glukhar's Nest", Tabaka chicken, cranberry morsel and freshly baked bread. It is best to book a table at a restaurant in advance, on the official [restaurant website](
