On the banks of three rivers – Moscow, Oka and Kolomna, the charming Kolomna is picturesquely stretched. “Podmoskovny Suzdal” – so they call Kolomna for the talkative bells and whistles, for wooden houses on stone pods, for the colorful onions of churches, and for the snow-white monasteries … The main architectural gem of the city and the real masterpiece of Russian fortification is the incredible, luxurious Kolomna Kremlin. This unique masterpiece of defense art over the centuries has never been captured by the enemy. And more recently the Kolomna Kremlin topped the list of the all-Russian competition “Russia-10” and entered the top ten “wonders of Russia” as one of the most striking monuments of architecture and culture of our Motherland. Kolomna Kremlin in its beauty and power is not inferior to Moscow. Out of the 17 towers of the Kremlin, only seven were seen today.
