Old Kolomna. Kolomna was an apple of discord for three Russian principalities. Several centuries ago it survived a terrible fire. The town was desolated by the plague, it was also burnt and devastated by the Tatars. Furthermore, Nazis bypassed Kolomna in just 30 km (19 mi).
Kolomna has evolved into one of the most attractive places for tourists in the Moscow region. And not having the status of being part of the Golden Ring makes it even more inviting since it is pleasantly off the beaten path. Many famous people made Kolomna their joyous refuge.
