Kolomenskoye Estate   Kolomenskoye Estate 

The Kolomenskoye Estate is an open-air museum of history. Kolomenskoye is located in the southern part of Moscow, across the Moskva river from downtown. It is the former summer residence of the grand princes of Moscow, and later - of the tsars. Now it is a magnificent example of the compelling architectural style. The church in the Kolomenskoye Estate was erected in 1532 by Vasili III to commemorate the birth of his son, Ivan IV (known as Ivan the Terrible). It was built in the so called “hip-roof” style, which is not typical of the Orthodox Church constructions.
