Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve, Moscow

4.7
Situated just a short drive southeast of Moscow's city center, Kolomenskoye Historical and Architectural Museum and Reserve combines history and nature. Formerly a rural estate developed as a summer retreat for the wealthy grand princes of Muscovy, this open-air museum contains both authentic and reconstructed historical buildings. The complex notably includes a 16th-century church built to commemorate the birth of Ivan the Terrible. Constructed of white stone, the church significantly departed from Byzantine building tradition by incorporating an octagonal body and a tiny dome. Other notable structures within the complex include a log cabin built for Peter the Great and a reconstruction of a wooden palace famed for its fairytale roofs.

Even so, I think that it is a place worth visiting because it can see wooden architecture and the Moscow River. Because it is a large park, it is recommended that you take about half a day to take a leisurely stroll if possible.
