Golden autumn in Kolomenskoye

Kolomenskoye, a former royal residence located south of the center of Moscow and occupying an area of about 390 hectares, is an interesting art, historical, architectural, and natural museum-reserve.

The main exhibit of Kolomenskoye is a beautiful park with numerous buildings of different times – one of the most popular parks in Moscow. It looks especially picturesque during the golden autumn. Kolomenskoye on Google Maps. Photos by: Vladimir d’Ar.
