The Kremlin

Highly recommended
The Kremlin is both the heart of Moscow and of the entire Russian Empire. From Ivan the Terrible to Stalin, its high red walls bristling with towers have thrown a shadow over the tyrants that decided the fate of millions of people, while its corridors were a hotbed of conspiracy. This high place of history and power, as well as the spiritual centre of Russian orthodoxy, is dotted with lavish palaces, cathedrals and museums. A visit to the Kremlin is the highlight of any trip to Moscow.
