A pleasant enough place to visit but Kolomenskoye is a fair way out from the centre of Moscow on very busy roads, so it takes time to get there and back (we went with a guide in their own car), which could be better spent in other places. We visited the wooden palace, the Ascension Church, a couple of the minor churches and walked through the park. There is a golf buggy transfer from the palace to near the Ascension Church. The Ascension Church is probably more interesting from the outside than the inside but we did not pay extra to see the museum exhibits (which may be better).

It is a nice park to walk around, but more for people who live in Moscow. The wooden palace is new. The churches are original and you do have a nice view of Moscow and the river. If I was here for a short visit there are way too many better things to see in Moscow than to come out here. I like coming here on the metro and enjoying the spring weather.

Kolomenskoe Park is a wonderful green space for Moscovites, but that's not what foreigners are here to see. Admittedly we were there on a rainy day which diminished our experience. The famous Church of the Ascension with its unique tented stone roof looked very ordinary, in need of a paint and disappointingly not open when we were there mid week.The highlight is Peter the Great's cottage from Archangel with good English explanation panels. Go if you have time but otherwise there is so much more to see and do in Moscow. We stayed in Moscow for a week and couldn't see everything of interest to us in that time. Similarly miss Tsaritsyno (Catherine's Palace) if you are visiting St Petersburg.

We chose to go to Kolomenskoye simply to get away from the touristy centre of the city, and we were delighted with what we found. Arriving at the south end of the reserve from the Kashirskaya metro station we were able to visit first the reconstructed Tsar Palace. This wooden palace was impressive in its detail and presented history in a living way with information in several languages available in each room. We enjoyed this far more that the Kremlin and would go so far as to suggest missing the Armoury at the Kremlin and spending time at Kolomenskoye.
The park is Huge and while we enjoyed walking the length of it to the other historic buildings, it is a very long way in the heat of the summer sun. There is the option of a little wheeled train which I would recommend. The walk is pleasant, through orchards and with glimpses of the river with the city in the distance. By the time we got to the north end of the estate we were really to hot to spend much time exploring.
I recommend a whole day if you wish to get the most out of this beautiful place.

I spent about two hours walking around some magnificent recently restored historical buildings from around Russia. Each is well described and signposted.

Paths are good quality and you walk down to Moskva river and back up to top where the views are really good.

Lots of apple orchards as well - there is a lot of history with this site which I’d be interested in.

I’d suggest choosing a warm clear day to visit.

Metro stations are nearby but will need short walk. I arrived at Kolomenskaya and left via Kashirskaya.

This is where lot of locals go - is not a tourist trap but there are plenty of facilities. Much better!

It is a huge park. We went by metro. We have visited few buildings and the palace. We wanted to take our daughter on a horse carriage ride. Sign stated every 20mn. A lady called and said there will be there at 3pm. We waited nearly an hour (we needed a rest anyway) but never turn up. Our daughter was a bit disappointed. So if you have children, best not to say anything. Small cafes but no vegetarian food. Worth a visit if you have time

Visit this national Russian park if you have spent several days in Moscow and little bit tired of busy crowded city.

The park area is large and consists of several areas with own atmosphere, character and places of interest, therefore I recommend to choose particular area to visit. If you have just one hours, you may save time using entrance to the certain area of park.
entrance №5 and №6 - is a short way to quiet paths and walks among meadows, close to new-built Tsar palace, ancient churchyard, apple gardens, but far away from a real treasure, the outstanding Sobor Vosnesenya.
As for me, Moscow citizen, I love this peaceful part of park, because it allows us escape out of busy city and feel like at village.
entrance №2 is located very close to the historical sights, the main is Sobor Vosnesenya. You may reach this area via №1 very fast, if you go directly towards the Sobor, however, turning left you get into the food street village with "pancakes and Medovukha" and a crowded trade fair on weekends.

Easy access with the Moscow metro, absolutely beautiful park, in my opinion it's a must see in Moscow. Access is free and you can have a nice quiet walk on the Moscow river bank there too. It offers a hiking trail as well. Very beautiful place. Make sure you visit all places shown on the map, you'll need about 2 hours of energetic walking to see everything.

... to take a long walk, calm and meditate. A couple of churches you will meet on your way will definitely help you to achieve this. A short 10 min walk away from the metro station.

I had a free afternoon after tending to some business, so I took the metro to kolomenskoye. the park complex is about a 10 minute walk from the subway, and is easy to locate. the grounds are nicely kept, and there are many walking paths through the park as well as along the river. the church of the ascension is the main attraction, and is also a UNESCO world heritage sight. the views across Moscow from the river's edge are quite compelling - almost worth the visit themselves. overall, an enjoyable, relaxing afternoon that made a nice sightseeing trip.
