ancient city of Moscow Oblast, Russia

Kolomna (Russian: Коло́мна, kah-LOHM-nuh) is a city in East Moscow Oblast.

UnderstandEdit

Get inEdit

 
A street inside Kolomna Kremlin

Trains depart from Kazansky station in Moscow approximately every hour and cost 198 руб. There are two types of train: most are local trains which head to Golutvin (Голутвин) and take 2 hours and 20 minutes. Kolomna is the station before Golutvin. There are also express trains to Ryazan which stop only in Golutvin, they take a little less than two hours.

Golutvin is not located in central Kolumna, it is about 3-4 km away. Therefore the slow trains to Kolumna, rather than the fast trains to Golutvin, will get you to Kolumna sooner.

Buses (number 460, Moscow-Golutvin) from Moscow cost around 230 руб. They depart more often than the train but are at the mercy of traffic. The bus station in Kolomna is near the Golutvin train station.

Get aroundEdit

There are buses and trams in Kolomna. Most of them are quite new and contain electronic displays with the names of the stations. The city is relatively small so the route map found on the wall of bus stops is comprehendable.

The single ride fare is 23 руб.

SeeEdit

A provincial town surrounds the central citadel (kremlin) which contains many old churches.
