Visit to Kolomenskoye. The ancient village of Kolomenskoye, located in southern Moscow, is a unique place to discover and appreciate a piece of Russian history and art set in a beautiful, natural environment. Its construction started at the beginning of the 14th century, judging by the first written notices we have about it. For several centuries Kolomenskoye was the summer residence of the Moscow princes, followed by the tsars, serving at different points as the residence and favorite hunting grounds for the Grand Prince Vasili III and Ivan the Terrible. We will visit a museum of wooden architecture, the traditional material used in the construction of civil and religious buildings in ancient Russia. We will also discover the old house of Peter the Great, while the most beautiful building is also the most ancient: the Church of the Ascension, designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It was built in 1532 by order of Vasili III and is a distinctive building with a tent-shaped roof erected in honor of the birth of his heir, Ivan the Terrible.
