The Wooden Palace of Alexey Mikhailovich
Russian tsars used Kolomenskoye as a vacation home from the 14th century onward. The park once contained a splendid wooden palace constructed for Tsar Aleksey I. ‘Wooden palaces are warmer, jollier and healthier’, - said the Tsar choosing between projects of wooden and stone palaces. The original building was demolished in the 18th century. Today, tourists can visit the full-scale reconstruction, which was erected in 2010.
