The following text was translated from the Russian original by the computer program

So it can be used only for general introduction.
coming to Kolomna, the most festive and memorable moment was the entrance to
the bridge over Kolomenku a splendid view over the Kremlin. That's what kind of meets now. Left - opened in 2008 "Ice Palace" (officially
- "Skating Center of Moscow Region" Kolomna ").
The scale of "Ice Palace" is clearly visible from space (program «Google Earth»). Kolomna - big city, with the territories of the problems there never was, and even in Soviet times the basic urban institutions, industrial zones and construction sites were passed far to the south-east of the historic center. What prompted the current Kolomna government to build a huge "Ice Palace" on the arrow of the Moscow River and Kolomenki - you can only guess. Apparently caught the "spirit of time".
At the opening of "Ice Palace" waiting for either prime minister, or president, and in honor of this very carefully "licking" the city. Even on the outskirts on the way from Moscow to replace the curb on the fragmented edges.
However, all the "lick" is not enough time. Here's a view from the Kremlin in the direction of tenements. Fortunately, all the "cost" - the first person in the country at the opening did not come.
But now this kind are now called to the Kremlin to Moscow. In the background - not a hill and the horizon, and the "Ice Palace".
A panorama of Kolomna Bobreneva monastery now this. Hence (as well as from many points of the Kremlin) shows that the back of the "Ice Palace" sticking two very unsightly pipes.

From Conception Church of St. John the Baptist in the Settlement (the beginning of the XIV century, rebuilt in the top of the XVI century), yet all, thank God, okay. I brought her to illustrate overheard behind her unhurried conversation between two residents of neighboring houses:
- What he photographed this church?
- But a tourist, I suppose.
- No, not like a tourist. Like in the case of some kind.
- Maybe something new there are going to build?
- And this church to bear that it will be?
- They could carry. Old as she is.
- No, probably not be demolished. She is still strong.
- Robust - not strong, but should be, since torn down.
- That's right.
There. As they say, the voice of the people - the voice of God.
