The ancient residence of the Czars and the actual seat of political power in Russia, and listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kremlin in Moscow is the grandest fortress in Europe.
This architectural collection is home to a number of palaces and cathedrals, of which the oldest dates back from the 15th century. The Cathedral of the Assumption, the ancient site of the coronations of the Czars and the Emperors of Russia is the most beautiful example. The Kremlin contains 56 sepulchres of czars and grand princes, as well as the Czar Cannon and the Czar Bell, both of extravagant sizes.
