The Moscow Kremlin is a symbol of the Russian
state, one of the largest architectural ensembles
of the world. The Kremlin is situated in
the center of the capital of Russia on the
high Borovitskiy hill above the Moskva River.
The ensemble of the Moscow Kremlin has been
formed many centuries. Today it contents the
architectural monuments of XIV–XX centuries.
The monumental walls of the fortress present the
look of the ancient part of Moscow. Talking about
the Kremlin's territory, we can't pass by the golden-domed
cathedrals, old chambers, magnificent palaces and beautiful
office blocks. They form the ensemble of Cathedral, Ivan,
Senatskaya, Palace and Troitskaya Squares and Spasskaya,
Borovitskaya, and Palace Streets of the Kremlin.
In 1990, the architectural ensemble of the Moscow
Kremlin and its treasures, Red Square and Aleksandrovskiy
Sad (the Alexandrov Gardens) were included into the World
Heritage List of UNESCO.
