The Moscow Kremlin was built in 1482−1495. It is situated on the high left bank of the Moskva River, where the river Neglinnaya flows into it. Just as the White House in Washington, the Kremlin in Moscow is the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation. If you look at the Kremlin's plan, you will see that it is an irregular triangle with the area of 27.5 hectares.
From the south of the Kremlin there is the Moskva River, in the northwest there is Alexander Gardens, and in the east there is Red Square.
The present red walls and towers of the Kremlin were built in 1485−1516. In the Kremlin there are five palaces and four cathedrals.
Along the walls there are twenty towers. The tallest tower is the Troitskaya Tower. New Year is traditionally greeted by the Russians with the chimes of the Spasskaya Tower.
More than 100 Soviet heroes were buried by the Kremlin Wall. The word «Kremlin» is often used for the Russian government.
Nikolskaya Street (Russian: Никольская улица) is a pedestrian street in the Kitay-Gorod of Moscow. It connects Red Square and Lubyanka Square. It was known as the Street of the 25th of October between 1935 and 1990.
The north side of the street is lined with historic buildings, such as the Kazan Cathedral, the Old Mint, Monastery of the Holy Saviour, Greek Monastery of St. Nicholas (from which this street takes its name), and the former Holy Synod Printing Offices, Russia's first publishing house. The south side contains the GUM and the Dormition Church, an example of the Naryshkin Baroque underwritten by the Saltykov boyar family in 1691.
The Nikolskaya Street and the neighbouring Tretyakovsky Proyezd are the center of Moscow's traditional luxury shopping district.
What to wear: before leaving the hotel do not forget to look outside and see what kind of clothes the weather requires today.
