Highlights of the tour
Nowadays the Kremlin is the most famous museum in Moscow and the office of Russian President. UNESCO listed architectural ensemble of Moscow Kremlin and the Armoury Chamber as world heritage sites.
The tour consists of 2 parts:*
1. Kremlin grounds
The Kremlin is a fortress which used to be the residence of Russian Tsars. Lenin and Stalin also lived there for some time. Its architectural complex features numerous churches and palaces, among which there is the Assumption Cathedral (it dates back to XV century) - the place where all Russian Tsars were crowned, the Archangel Cathedral, where Russian rulers were buried, Terem palace (XVII century) and such must-see sites as the Tsar Bell and the Tsar Cannon.
Note: we will visit Kremlin Cathedrals, but we will spend most of the time outside, so please, wear warm clothes if is cold or bring umbrella if it is raining.
2. The Armoury Chamber
The Armoury is a treasure-house that occupies a separated building constructed in XIX century and located on the Kremlin grounds. Its collection is based on precious items that were kept in the tsars' treasury. These items include coronation dresses, carriages, arms and priceless royal regalia: crowns, thrones, jewelry. The museum was named 'the Armoury Chamber' after the biggest Kremlin workshop, responsible for making regal weaponry and armor. It later on became an important treasury store. Among the most famous exhibits we can mention Monomakh's Cap - one of the oldest Russian crowns, Peter the Great's throne and crown, coronation dress of Catherine the Great and world-famous Faberge Eggs.
