    Kolomenskoye - former hunting grounds of the czar. There are a couple of churches - a newish one (still active) with onion domes that look like the sky, and older one modeled on the style of the wooden churches (pictured), and another if you hike further in the woods with an interesting churchyard. Also old wooden buildings. Sit on the hillside and comtemplate the view of the Moskva (Moscow) river and the city beyond. Some art is sold here by local artists. At the metro station of the same name (Kolomenskaya).

    That was always so funny.
