Especially beautiful in May and August - because of the blooming and apple season. A lot of beautiful nature!

It's a such a nice place! Monuments are worth the visit (incl. Peter the Great's house). The park/gardens are great too. It's not that far from the city centre (next but one stop from the circle line) and only 5 min walk from the metro station (along the main highway). The best time to visit is early in the morning...

Although we visited a little late in the day and were unable to get into the cathedral, it is an impressive building. Perhaps we spent too much time in the rebuilt wooden palace at the other end of the estate.

We could not find the location. We followed the map on trip advisor and then marked the spot on apple maps. Ended up in some industrial location that felt scary. It is possible that this was a problem with the map application although we haven't had this problem so far in Russia. I recommend going with a local.

It's far away from city centre but just next to the metro station. You can take nice walks and enjoy the landscapes and nature, as if you weren't in a big city. Great in autumn. And the architectural sights are worth the visit.

We hired a private tour guide to take us there. The summer is a great time to visit and the pictures we took were absolutely fantastic. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and wear a hat/sunglasses etc.

It is very pictoresque and it's fun to go out there with family or friends to explore Russian history and enjoy your week-end

If you visited all interesting places in Moscow and have nothing to do, go to Kolomenskoye. Be prepared you will not see beautiful wooden buildings, there are some cottages. The copy of tsar's palace is nice, but it is reconstruction from 2010, so it is new. It is a nice park for people living in neighbourhood, but not for tourists.

I stayed in the on-site Kolomenskoye hotel and enjoyed exploring the many attractions in the park, which is also an enormous outdoor cultural museum. There are plenty of places to buy food and drink, from the little wooden stalls selling drinks and ice cream, to the wooden 'tavernas' with indoor and outdoor seating, mainly selling delicious shashlik of chicken, pork,...

The buildings were great but I enjoyed walking around the park more. Close to two subway stops, worth the visit.
