History and features

Perched above the Moskva River, the Kremlin has been an important place and symbol to Russia for hundreds of years. It originated as a wooden fort built by the Grand Duke of Kiev around 1147, and since then the structure grew at a rapid pace. At the end of the 14th century, the city had developed further and the citadel was fortified with stone walls. Under the rule of Ivan the Great, the Kremlin was remodeled and the Russian Terem Palace, as well as the Cathedrals of Assumption, Archangel and Annunciation, were added to this massive complex. The Senate Building, Kremlin Arsenal and Great Kremlin Palace was constructed during the 18th and 19th century, under the rule of Peter the Great. The Revolution in 1917 allowed the Kremlin to regain its status as the seat of the Russian government.
