Kremlin The Kremlin, the center of Russian power, is in the heart of Moscow. Inside its walled perimeter are the major buildings of the Russian government, several churches, a museum, and the armory that houses a huge collection of diamonds and jewelry.


Red Square is just outside the Kremlin wall. St. Basil's Cathedral and the Moscow State Historical Museum are at opposite ends of the square. The GUM Department Store runs along its side, across from Lenin's Mausoleum and the Kremlin wall.

Decoration at top of thermometer Remnants of the soviet era are visible all over the city of Moscow, but in their midst are hallmarks of the current market based economy such as fast food restaurants and advertising for express global courier services. The subway system is a living museum to the soviet era as is the building formerly used as the KGB headquarters.


The Novodevichy Convent served as a fortress along one of the defensive walls surrounding Moscow. The city also has a large number of picturesque neighborhood churches and the large and recently completed Christ the Holy Redeemer Cathedral lies along the Moscow River.
