Russia (5): the Kremlin

The Moscow Kremlin (Russian for "fortress") has been the center of Russian power for centuries, except for the period when the Tsars moved to live in St.Petersburg. It is not a single building or palace but a little city inside the city, surrounded by the red wall that gives its name to the famous square. Part of it is open to visitors so that they can contemplate its 4 Cathedrals and their golden domes.
