Kolomenskoye - A Palace Restored!

 
 
Kolomenskoye is a former royal estate situated several miles to the south-east of Moscow city-centre, on the ancient road leading to the town of Kolomna (hence the name). It was here that Tsar Alexis Mikhailovich built an elaborate wooden palace in the second half of the 17th century. 

Unfortunately, in 1768, queen Katherine the great refused to live in it, and had it destroyed and built a new, only to be destroyed again in 1872. However, very specific construction plans of the original palace were saved and have survived the passage of time. 

Now, almost 4 centuries later, that palace has been built again.
