This was a nice museum to walk around for a couple of hours. Make sure to come on a nice day otherwise your walk around the place will probably be miserable. But we went on a nice and sunny day which allowed me to see the beauty of the place.

It is one of the places in Moscow which should be seen. Great example of Russian culture and architecture. It is also a great place to walk. The walking track goes through really interesting places and buildings. There is a little restaurant near the palace serving traditional Russian dishes and a little gift shop. If you will be in Moscow... More

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.
