Kolomna is famous for its Kremlin whose towers tell the story of the time of troubles in Russia, and give an opportunity to touch the models of weapons that have been used for 10 centuries.
“Kolomna is an amazing town! I was able to feel the history of Russia. For the first time in my life I saw how guests were greeted with “bread and salt” according to the Russian tradition. And also I first tried kvass! It's amazing! I wanted to stay in Kolomna longer in order to know more about the history of Russia in the period of distemper and the history of false Dmitriy, ”- Marolo Catlejo from South Africa, a 2nd year student at the Medical Institute.
“Every home is a story. This street, for example, is named after one of the prominent writers of the Russian Empire, Ivan Lazhechnikov, ”said the guide.
