Troika Ride

On a 3 horse troika ride at Kolomenskoe. It was 10 minutes long, and 2 circles, but it was so much fun. It was my grandma's ( Tina in CT's ) dream to do this. It was a little hard to get a troika, but totally worth it. After that we had a tour of Kolomenskaya.

We got to go in to the summer cabin of Peter the 1. Did you know he was 2 meters 40 sentimeteres tall ( sorry I only know the metric system. ). The big nail on the pole shows how tall he was.


  1. Катя, I loved your video of the troika ride, especially your version of Jingle Bells! Looks like fun! Except for the snow the weather is almost exactly the same in Indianapolis, Indiana where I live. Your pictures of Tsar Peter's summer home is neat as well. He was definitely a tall man (about six feet eight inches).

    Ваш блог ищет действительно хорошо до сих пор, и я рассчитываю на чтение больше ваших сообщений! С Новым годом!
