The Church of the Ascension

The Church of the Ascension, built as a palace church in 1532, is the earliest and the most significant of Kolomenskoye's buildings. It is supposed that the Church of the Ascension is a votive church constructed by Vasily III as an offering of thanks for the birth of his long-awaited son Ivan, to be known as Ivan the Terrible.

The Linden alley

The landscape park with the Linden alley dated by XIXth. c. in the centre of Kolomenskoye is a lovely piece of garden architecture; and the alley of ancient oaks situated not far from "Sytny Dvor" (The place where the provisions were stored and dishes for the tsar's family were cooked) is the pride and joy of the museum.
Those ancient trees are as old as 400 to 600 years of age; they are the oldest in Moscow area.
