Day trip to Kolomna

Hello dear readers,

today I will take you to Kolomna, a small city in the golden circle. It is located around 100km south-east of Moscow, still in Moscow Oblast.

You can either go there by Elektrichka, which is a local train, but with many stops, so I recommend the bus, which leaves every 30mins from the Metro station Kotelniki in Moscow to Kolomna. It will take around 2hours by bus to get there, depending on the traffic situation in the outskirts of Moscow.

I went there by car and it took around 90mins on M5 motorway.

When arriving in Kolomna, you will immediately see the Kremlin of the city on your left and there are many parking options. When you come by bus, it will also stop just behind the Kremlin at the central bus station.

The Kremlin consists of many buildings, churches and a monastery, which are all worth a visit. There is further one a small museum about the history of the area and the entrance fee is only 50RUB and 30RUB for students and pensioners. They have a nice collection there and I enjoyed watching at them.

Further on there are some souvenir shops, if you fancy to buy anything to take home.

After finishing visiting the Kremlin, I went for a walk along the Bolshaya Ulitsa, which hosts a lot of old houses and small shops. There is also a shopping centre at the end of the street.

All in all I can tell that it is a very nice small charming city, which is well worth a visit.

If you have some question – I am glad to help you!
