The dilemma of the week was how to find a day out that combined somewhere-for-the-kids-to-run-around, with visiting-relatives-wanting-something-interesting-to-see. Kolomenskoye solved the problem. It is a former royal estate and is massive (in fact we only really explored one corner of it). But there is plenty to see including a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the form of the Church of the Ascension which was built in 1532. You can read the full post about our visit here.
