Kremlin (Russia)

Kremlin is the Russian word for "fortress", "citadel", or "castle" and refers to any major fortified central complex found in historical Russian cities. This word is often used to refer to the best known one, the Moscow Kremlin, or the government that is based there. Outside Russia, the name "Kremlin" is sometimes mistakenly thought of as being Saint Basil's Cathedral because of its distinctive shape, although this is not a part of the Moscow Kremlin.

Take the tour amd for the men, do not miss the Armoury!!
Lots of really important Russian history there in this area.
Don't park yourself in the barrel of the BIG cannon, the guards don't like that!!
This is a "must see" for travelers passing through Moscow.
Try the borsch, it is really good.
