This is probably the most beautiful & intricate doorway I spotted in the Kremlin.
Pretty, isn't it?
This is where the holy relics of Patriarch Hermogen remains. He starved to death in 1612 during the Polish invasion (The Time of the Troubles).
The pix is self explanatory.
Human seems to have a fascination with size :-)
Best airport, etc...
Go into the Kremlin and just wander the churchs. Check out the Tarhem Palace hidden behind the Assumption Cathedral. The Diamond Fund and Armory are definatly must sees too.
I thought it was one building but it turned out to be an entire complex full of pastel-colored buildings and museums. Very interesting.
Cast in 1586 for Tsar Fyodor I. It has never been used in action. Probably because noone could lift the cannon balls into the cannon.
