One of the most “appetizing” museums in Kolomna is “Kalach” museum. Here, within the walls of an architectural monument of the mid-19th century, in a two-hearth kalach oven, magic happens – the old Russian craft is being revived. The process was approached very responsibly: the stove was reconstructed according to old drawings and it is heated exclusively with birch firewood without bark in order to give kalach a special whiteness.
Having been on a theatrical tour, do not forget to look into the shop for a reward. Kolomna kalachniks daily delight with fresh hot pastries according to recipes of the 14th century. Be sure to try the star of the museum – kalach “Kolomensky” with stewed goose.
