In the past there were so many apple orchards in Kolomna that the city would have too many apples to eat and so they were used to make sweet apple-flavoured pastilles. Over time Kolomna's fame for these pastilles spread all over the empire. Now in the city there are two museums dedicated to this local delicacy. The first is the Kolomna Pastille Museum located near St Nicholas' Church in the Posad. This museum was opened in 2009 in an old estate-house and hold excursions dedicated to the sweets but also on the history of Kolomna's merchant class. Also located on the museum's territory is its beautiful garden. These museums are popular stops with coach trips and so you should call in advance to ensure you get a place on an excursion.
