We took a day trip one day to KOLOMENSKOYE..on a bluff in a bend on the Moscow River its 10 minutes from the kolomenskoe metro stop...St John the Baptist Church(built for ivan the terrible)...KAZAN CHURCH...Peter the Great's wooden cabin..ST Georges Belltower...all quailty stuff...and a great view of the Moscow River.It is well worth the trip to the outskirts.
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).

It was really new for me to see how names of the popular brands are reversed and spelt not in original language, but in Russian.
That was always so funny.
