IZMAILOVO KREMLIN IN THE WINTER

Izmailovo Kremlin is an entertainment venue set in a whimsical fortress-palace. It hosts all sorts of museums — of history, art, vodka, bread, — restaurants, a tea house, a crafts market and a marriage chapel, of all things. Basically, it’s a whole lot of random fun (I know I am underselling it) under many brightly colored roofs!

  1. Oh WOW this is gorgeous. With very little immediate prospect of visiting Moscow, I have delighted in your insider’s tour of places of interest. Your pictures underline for me one reason I adore Russian architecture and exterior design: the sure knowledge that it will be framed in snow and overcast fully half the year, and the exuberant use of color. One does not wish to lose important landmarks in the snow!

    If only the locals in Minnesota could take note of this… Putty does not look well against a snowy landscape. 🙂

    • I am a Russian who lives in Minnesota, and I fully agree! I visited this market for the first time in August and absolutely fell in love with it. Wish Minnesota had a little more color to it.

      • The market is where my paycheck goes to die – there’s always something so pretty I cant resist! And I just love the area – with the pond, and park, and old monastery nearby there’s so much to do.

    • Yup, I’ve read that it’s 17 years old, and the market is only 25, which SHOCKED me. I assumed it’s been there for decades, incl. Soviet decades.
