Kolomenskiy Palace recalls the classical palaces from the old Russian fairy tale. It was built in the 17th century by order of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich. The wonderful wooden palace with emerald green domes and towers became an ornament of the tiny Kolomenskoe village. The beautiful palace existed only a few decades ago and began to decay gradually. Later, there was nothing on the site of the once majestic building.

The idea of ​​restoring the magical palace was made just over twenty years ago. The modern architects and designers have built the 'new' old Kolomenskiy Palace. The models of the palace have been preserved for centuries and have been used during reconstructions. With their help the original form of the beautiful Tsar's Palace was restored.

In the course of several reconstructions, the historians and painters have succeeded in recreating the original setting of the palace. The palace visitors have a chance to wander past the royal apartments of Yelisaveta Petrovna, to graze on the painted ceilings and walls, as well as the stained glass windows and to watch the collection of the ancient icons. The palace looks incredibly harmonious and realistic. The inexperienced tourists will hardly believe that this remarkable architectural monument was erected just a few years ago. Many tourists prefer to visit the palace surrounded by the incredibly beautiful garden in the spring. In May, hundreds of trees and tulips bloom in the garden, around which the building looks even more irresistible.

Palace of tsarevich Dmitriy (Palace of Uglich princes)

Uglich, Yaroslavl region

1480s

The Princely Chamber, found in the Uglich Kremlin territory, is known primarily as residence of Tsarevich Dmitry, killed in 1591, the last from the Rurik dynasty, the heir of Ivan the Terrible. Before the tragic events the Princely Chamber as the name itself implies, was home to many notable persons.

The Chamber is among the oldest extant residential buildings in whole Russia. In fact, today's Princely Chamber is only part of a huge complex of residential and ceremonial buildings that were initially built of wood, and then under Andrew V. Large, of stone. It is believed that Swedish Prince Gustav, a son of King Eric IV, reputed an alchemist and magician, according to popular rumor, lived in the Chamber after the death of Tsarevich Dmitry. During the Polish invasion the Princely Chamber along with the Transfiguration Cathedral became the last refuge for the desperate citizens. The complex was burned by the Poles and then demolished, with only its front and main parts, i.e. the Princely Chamber itself, survived by a miracle. As legend has it, three masters-builders climbed the Chamber walls in hope to get bricks, but all of them fell down for inexplicable reason. Since then no one else wanted to risk their lives, it was decided to leave the Chamber to itself. Later an Uglich merchant repaired the Chamber, attached a stone porch to it, surrounded it by a fence and decorated its upstairs with paintings. The Chamber underwent next restoration in 1890-1892, and in 1982 a museum was opened at the Princely Chamber.

The Princely Chamber has been delighting the eye of people over a hundred years being not only an architectural monument, but also a symbol of great skill of the architects and great striving of the citizens to preserve historically significant landmark.

Chambers of the Romanov Boyars

Moscow

16th-17th cent

When Mikhail Romanov was elected Tsar in 1613, his family had for centuries been making steady progress up the social and political ladder of Muscovy. This palace, built by Mikhail's grandfather, Nikita Zakharin (the Romanov name was adopted by his children), was a mark of the family's status in the reign of Ivan the Terrible (confirmed beyond doubt by the young Ivan's marriage to Nikita's sister, Anastasia in 1547). Before his death, Ivan made Nikita joint regent with Boris Godunov and, as the latter moved to have himself crowned Tsar, boyars from the older families rallied round the Romanov faction in opposition. Godunov prevailed, and the family was exiled en masse to beyond the Urals. The head of the family, Feodor Nikitich, was forced to take monastic vows, assuming the name Filaret. It was in this capacity that, after Godunov's death, he rose to become Patriarch, the eminence grise behind the throne of the two False Dimitrys and then of his son, Mikhail I.

From Mikhail's election by the boyar assembly onwards, the family lived in the Kremlin, and it wasn't until the 19th Century that Nicholas I decided to have the building restored to its former glories as a tribute to his ancestors. Since 1859, it has operated as a museum, one of the first in city, offering visitors an opportunity to experience aristocratic life in the Moscow of the Middle Ages first-hand. The house is on two levels, the ground floor devoted to the public 'men's' rooms, and the second storey to the ladies' quarters, where the women spent their days weaving and doing needlework. The beautiful interiors, meticulously recreated by the architect Richter, show the very different styles of the two floors: the men's section is dark and imposing, with exquisitely tooled leather coverings on the walls, while the second floor is pleasantly light and airy, the walls lined with pale wood.

Although a venerable Moscow institution, the Palace is for some reason not often frequented by foreigners. This is shame, as it's a genuinely fascinating and appealing museum that gives an unusually complete glimpse of a world unknown to most Russians, let alone foreign visitors.

Terem Palace

Moscow

1635 - 1636

Terem Palace or Teremnoy Palace (Russian: Теремной дворец) is a historical building in the Moscow Kremlin, Russia, which used to be the main residence of the Russian tsars in the 17th century. Its name is derived from the Greek word τερεμνον (i.e., "dwelling"). Currently, the structure is not accessible to the public, as it belongs to the official residence of the President of Russia.

In the 16th century Aloisio da Milano constructed the first royal palace on the spot. Only the ground floor survives from that structure, as the first Romanov tsar, Mikhail Feodorovich, had the palace completely rebuilt in 1635–36. The new structure was surrounded by numerous annexes and outbuildings, including the Boyar Platform, Golden Staircase, Golden Porch, and several turrets. On Mikhail's behest, the adjoining Golden Tsaritsa's Chamber constructed back in the 1560s for Ivan IV's wife, was surmounted with 11 golden domes of the Upper Saviour Cathedral. The complex of the palace also incorporates several churches of earlier construction, including the Church of the Virgin's Nativity from the 1360s.

The palace consists of five stories. The third story was occupied by the tsaritsa and her children; the fourth one contained the private apartments of the tsar. The upper story is a tent-like structure where the Boyar Duma convened. The exterior, exuberantly decorated with brick tracery and colored tiles, is brilliantly painted in red, yellow, and orange. The interior used to be painted as well, but the original murals were destroyed by successive fires, particularly the great fire of 1812. In 1837, the interiors were renovated in accordance with old drawings in the Russian Revival style.
