Palace in Kolomenskoe, Russia

From series “The Most Wonderful Castles and Palaces”
Year: 21 century.

Kolomensky Palace recalls the classical palaces from the old Russian fairy tale. It was built in the 17th century by order of Czar Alexei Mikhaylovich. The wonderful wooden palace with emerald green domes and towers became an ornament of the tiny Kolomenskoe village. The beautiful palace existed only a few decades ago and began to decay gradually. Later, there was nothing on the site of the once majestic building.

Palace in Kolomenskoe, Russia The idea of ​​restoring the magical palace was made just over twenty years ago. The modern architects and designers have built the 'new' old Kolomensky Palace. The models of the palace have been preserved for centuries and have been used during reconstructions. With their help the original form of the beautiful Tsar's Palace was restored.

In the course of several reconstructions, the historians and painters have succeeded in recreating the original setting of the palace. The palace visitors have a chance to wander past the royal apartments of Yelisaveta Petrovna, to graze on the painted ceilings and walls, as well as the stained glass windows and to watch the collection of the ancient icons. The palace looks incredibly harmonious and realistic. The inexperienced tourists will hardly believe that this remarkable architectural monument was erected just a few years ago. Many tourists prefer to visit the palace surrounded by the incredibly beautiful garden in the spring. In May, hundreds of trees and tulips bloom in the garden, around which the building looks even more irresistible. Next - Chateau d Usse
