MAP OF THE KREMLIN

Close

The Moscow Kremlin is a symbol of the Russian State, one of the greatest architectural complexes in the world, a treasure house of magnificent relics and monuments of art and culture. It is situated high on the Borovitskiy Hill above the Moskva River.

The Moscow Kremlin architectural ensemble has been formed over many centuries. Today it includes architectural monuments of the 14th-20th centuries. First of all, there is the fortress itself, which with its mighty walls and towers dominated the panorama of the old part of Moscow; and on the territory of the Kremlin there are golden-domed churches, ancient chambers, majestic palaces and grand administrative buildings. They form the ensemble of Sobornaya, Ivanovskaya, Senatskaya, Dvortsovaya and Troitskaya squares, Spasskaya, Borovitskaya and Dvortsovaya streets of the Kremlin.

The architectural ensemble of the Moscow Kremlin, its treasures, Red Square and the Alexander Garden were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in the 1990s. The museums located on its territory were transformed into the "Moscow Kremlin" State Historical and Cultural Museum and Heritage Site.

Today the unique museum complex includes the Armoury Chamber, the Assumption, Archangel and Annunciation Cathedrals, the Church of the Deposition of the Virgin’s Robe, the Patriarch's Palace with the Twelve Apostles' Church, the 'Ivan the Great' Bell Tower complex, and a collection of artillery pieces and bells.
