For those who grew up in the "Cold War," the word "Kremlin" has a strange connotation, it is not completely warm and fuzzy. As far as I knew, it was synonymous with the Soviet government, the clutches of the mysterious leaders who ultimately "buried us" in Khrushchev's words. Of course I was disturbed, I would have known much more about the truth of the Kremlin, even though its image probably did not change in the imagination.
The word itself is more of a general description than an actual name, somewhat equivalent to the English word "citadel" and is used to describe similar sites in other Russian cities such as Yaroslavl and Smolensk. This is in Moscow, which is almost always referred to, and that is what we are now interested in.
I recently had a good time visiting Moscow and of course I could not leave without having to visit Kremlin for a long time. As I passed through the outer wall of the famous citadel I could not help but thought that I would have been arrested immediately and I would never have seen it again if I had actually arrived. Times have changed, and the once-forbidden Kremlin is now the most popular tourist destination in the city. It is not difficult to see why, as soon as it passes through its huge walls, the first great attraction is at the lower street entrance of the famous Kremlin Museum and if visitors could not leave and pass easily beyond the usual length of the line. But what really draws attention is a collection of cathedrals that crown the properly named cathedral. There are three wonderful cathedrals and two more temples to finish the set. When I did homework as a child, I would have known that these religious structures did not dominate and dominate the Kremlin alone. But, unfortunately, I did not, and I was really surprised to see such an imposing spiritual element in his heart called President Reagan's "evil empire."
If you are able to withstand the magnetic attraction of these beautiful buildings, it would be nice to walk to the Kremlin Museum and take advantage of the offered culture and history lessons. The miraculous examples of the great riches of the past empire are in its many stages and contain elements that you will probably never see outside its walls, from the Russian first caribbean to the beautiful Faberge jewels. The museum has a much better feeling and feeling on the strength and greatness of Russia's past empires, and perhaps gives an insight into the psychology and character of today's Russia.
After leaving the windowless galleries, exiting the fresh air of the Kremlin's architectural fascinating view of refreshing change. You will probably lead the Archangel Michael to the cathedral to enjoy the richly decorated interior. When I was there, one fifth of a young Russian singer dealt with the current CD of traditional orthodox spiritual songs. This was the perfect accompaniment to the visit, the wonderful voices that were reverberating in the sacred room, so the visitor gave a unique pattern to the spiritual music of the church. Of course, one of them was a typical Russian bass, which seems to be unique in this country, and its rich, low voices shriek to its core. Such performances of music groups are not unusual in Russia, so you may find them in other cathedrals and temples in the Republic. They unleash themselves and sell CDs but enrich the visit of all to the historical masterpieces of spiritual architecture.
After leaving this cathedral, simply pick up a breathtaking experience. You will see a series of golden onions that are unique to Russian Orthodoxy and stand toward the sky. If there is anything that serves as a universally acknowledged icon of Russia, then these domees should be placed on top of the list. It's not easy to resist for a few minutes, so go ahead!
As you continue your cruise in the Kremlin, hand over the mighty Cárcanian, a ridiculously fanciful gangster on which Fyodor Czar commander was built in 1586. Approximately 38 tons and 890 mm boreholes. More than 800 pounds of stone shots were designed in a shot that iron-cone balls in front of them are misleading. The story means that they were made in St. Petersburg and Moscow is still a joke about the friendly rivalry between the two cities – too big to fit into the canon. The dragon was never fired.
In addition to the terrible pistol, the world's largest bell is Cárharang. This 300-ton bell was built by Emperor 1734, but as the Tsar's canon, they never heard their meaning. In the Kremlin, a large fire ran over the foundry where the bell was forged, creating a huge piece. A more amusing story is that Peter, with his fist, bitten the bell, cutting off the huge piece. Peter was really great, but it's a bit unlikely!
During your trip you will probably notice the many castles on the terrible wall of the Kremlin. Many of these are in itself an architectural masterpiece, and two of the eighteen are named.
The Russian President's official residence is in the walls of the Kremlin and is known as the "Senate" in the Soviet days actually became the headquarters of the government. Ornate interiors deserve a visit if you can spin it. You may need an official surrender from one of your senior fellow to do this.
It is perhaps the only building that is outstandingly outstanding for its contrasting appearance, the State Kremlin Palace built in 1959-61. It was originally called the Congress Palace and became a meeting point for congresses of various republics. You can recognize the inside of the memories of many photos and news clips that met in the sixties and seventies. It is used mainly as a theatrical and public building of the Soviet Union.
There is still much to see and visit in the Kremlin than I mentioned here, but my own experience limits me to the above. History in its vast walls includes the history of the Russian empires and peoples, and should not be missed if we understand the country better. Do not miss it!
