Excursion to the expositions of the Palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich “Ceremonial Chambers of the Tsar’s Palace in Kolomenskoye”

The palace in the residence near Moscow in Kolomenskoye was erected by decree of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov. He, the keeper of the Orthodox faith and Russian antiquity, for the first time in the history of national architecture ordered to build the state chambers not according to the traditional principle of the “choir”, but in a European way. So the boyars saw, and beyond them the foreign ambassadors who were received here, an enfilade of magnificent, shining with gold, painted with marvelous ornamental patterns and decorated with precious overseas fabrics, chandeliers and tapestries, halls. The front canopy, the Chamber of Thrones and the Throne Chamber, the canopy in front of the Dining Room and the Dining Room itself will be the story of them. And the “Russian fairy tale” in a tree will come to life. And it will become clear what the emperor sought, investing a lot of money in the construction of his palace: so that the guests from the East and West, struck by what they saw, spread the news of the wealth and power of the tsar of the Russian land.
