Visit the inspiring buildings of the Kremlin complex
From its position on the banks of the Moskva River, the Kremlin has played an important part in the history of Russia for centuries. To this day, it's one of the most important centres of politics in Russia and the world.
However, the Kremlin began life as a simple fortification for defense against invading enemies for its indigenous peoples. Over time, additions to the complex became more grand and imposing, with the Tsars commanding various palaces and governmental buildings to be built. The largest of the buildings, the Grand Kremlin Palace, was built by Nicholas I in the 19th century.
As it stands, the Kremlin functions as a great exhibition of the architecture of various times in Russian history, with buildings dating from the 1400s to the modern age.
