Kolomiya stands in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. It is a symbol of the revival of forgotten shrines, the cradle of the Western Ukrainian history, the pearl of the Western Ukraine. It is believed that the city was founded in 4th – 5th century AD. The city owned by Prince Daniil Galitsky was referred to as "lucrative city" for the first time in 1241 in the Galicia-Volyn chronicle. In ancient times the city served as the commercial and defense center of the south-east outskirts of Galician Rus. TheCoat of arms of the city, which represents the head of an eagle, was first mentioned in 1395. Kolomiya got its Magdeburg Rights in 1405.There are 12 architectural monuments of local and national significance in this city: The "Monastyrok" (Savior Church) from 1587, Two-tiered bell tower (18th century), The Greek-Catholic Church of St. Mary (1775); The Cathedral of Saint Michael (1855-1873), The Gymnasium (1875-1901 year). The first impressions ... Almost immediately comes with this feeling: Kolomiya has its own special, uncomparable atmosphere.

The main attraction in Kolomiya is the only Pysanka Museum in the world. It is unique not only in content but also in form too: After entering you will find yourself inside of a huge egg. Here you will be able to conduct master classes on how to decorate eggs. Eggs made in Kolomiya do not spoil or break: they have this know-how and it inspired to start this museum.
