The ensemble of the Moscow Kremlin has been formed many centuries. Today it contents the architectural monuments of XIV-XX centuries. The monumental walls of the fortress present the look of the ancient part of Moscow. Talking about the Kremlin’s territory, we can’t pass by the golden-domed cathedrals, old chambers, magnificent palaces and beautiful office blocks. They form the ensemble of Cathedral, Ivan, Senatskaya, Palace and Troitskaya Squares and Spasskaya, Borovitskaya, and Palace Streets of the Kremlin.
