The Kremlin

The Kremlin is the stronghold of Russian political power. Here, Ivan the Terrible and Stalin orchestrated terrors, Napoleon watched Moscow burn, Lenin made the dictatorship of the proletariat, Khrushchev fought the Cold War, Gorbachev unleashed perestroika, and Yeltsin dreamt the New Russia.

The Kremlin occupies a roughly triangular plot of land covering little Borovitsky Hill on the north bank of the Moscow River, probably first settled in the 11th century. Today it's enclosed by high walls. Red Square lies outside the east wall. The Kutafya Tower, which forms the main visitors' entrance, stands away from the Kremlin's west wall.

Most visitors are surprised to see so many churches in what was, for decades, a den of militant atheism, but the Kremlin was once the centre of Russia's Church as well as its State. Start with Archangel Cathedral (the royal burial church), Assumption Cathedral (the burial church of religious leaders) and Annunciation Cathedral (icons, icons everywhere).

 Many centuries ago Moscow was built on seven hills. It is rather difficult to discern them now, with the only exception of Borovitsky Hill where one of the twenty Kremlin towers stands. The Kremlin (translated from Greek, the word means Уa steep hillФ) and Red Square definitely are the main Moscow sights, symbols of the whole of Russia. The intricate towers and walls of the Moscow Kremlin were built to a design of Italian architects.

The Russian Government works in the Kremlin, so tourists are only allowed to the part of its territory where the cathedrals are located, the oldest Russian museum of the Armoury Chamber, and the Diamond Fund with its unique collection of precious stones and jewelry. In the Kremlin, close to the 81 Ц meter tall Bell-Tower of Ivan the Great Ц once the highest building in Russia Ц the Tsar-Bell is on display, the largest bell in the world.
