Grand Kremlin Palace

Perhaps, relative to the Kremlin itself, the Grand Kremlin Palace is quite a young structure — it was built by order of Nicholas I in 1849. Once upon a time, right inside the palace was one of the oldest churches in Moscow — the Cathedral of the Savior on the Bor, but in 1933 it suffered the same fate as many other churches — it was demolished.

The architecture of the palace is peculiar — despite the fact that it corresponds to some canons of classicism, for example, its symmetry of forms, the decor details remind of traditional Russian architecture — In particular, the windows are decorated with familiar carved platbands.

The main facade of the building faces the waterfront. The palace itself has five halls named after orders that existed in the Russian Empire — Georgievsky, Ekaterininsky, Alexandrovsky, Andreevsky and Vladimirsky. Emperor Nicholas I himself insisted on these names, who actually planned to make the palace a monument to the exploits of Russian soldiers.

Today, the most important state ceremonies take place here, but everyone can visit the Grand Kremlin Palace — for this purpose, you need to sign up for a tour in advance.
