Gradually, a small village called “Moscow”, located within the walls of the Kremlin, became the capital of mighty Russia, and the monumental Kremlin was included into the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. Massive walls, majestic chambers, golden-domed cathedrals and ancient towers form a unique operating museum, administrative and political complex that bears many legends and secrets.

The Assumption Cathedral
The strict, monumental silhouette of the golden-domed Assumption Cathedral reigns over the surrounding palaces and churches in the Cathedral square of the Kremlin – the ancient citadel of Moscow. The cathedral was built in 1479 by order of Grand Prince of Moscow Ivan III by specially invited Italian architect Aristotle Fioravanti.
For six centuries the Assumption Cathedral remained the state and religious center of Russia: the great princes were proclaimed and later tsars and emperors were crowned here. Bishops, metropolitans and patriarchs were raised to their dignity, state acts were announced and prayers before military campaigns and in honor of the victories were held in the Assumption Cathedral.
The murals of the cathedral, its icons and various utensils are considered to be the works of art of world importance. Your attention will be attracted by magnificent frescoes, a unique iconostasis, the portrait gallery of princes and kings that were buried here and other works of ancient Russian art.
The Annunciation Cathedral
In the southern part of the Cathedral square stands the Annunciation Cathedral, one of the oldest and richest in works of art monuments of the Moscow Kremlin. The temple is famous for its magnificent murals that were already mentioned as long ago as in the early 15th century. You will see drawings by famous such artists as Theophanes the Greek, Andrei Rublev and Prokhor of Gorodets. These outstanding masters did not only painted walls, but also created icons for the local iconostasis, which can rightly be called a masterpiece of Russian art.
