The Kremlin Cathedrals

On Wednesday 15.04.2009 at 14:30 the excursion to the Moscow Kremlin for participants of the conference starts. Departure from Steklov Mathematical Institute is at 13:00. The excursion starts from the Kutafiya Tower of the Kremlin.

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.
