Travels in Russia – Day 3

June 3, 2013

Moscow, 3 June 2013

Today I got inside the Kremlin.  Thia is something I thought impossible for a British man to do.  The Kremlin is not an austere fortress.  It contains palaces and churches.  There is evidence that it contains the seat of Russian Government but it is evident that most of the administration is done elsewhere.

It is prohibited to take photos inside the palaces and churches.  However, I was amazed at the many treaures of the Tsars such as Peter The Great, Ivan the Terrible and Catherine The Great were on display.
