The Kremlin's Palaces

The home of tsars.

The Grand Kremlin Palace was the usual residency of Russian tsars, and nowadays it's the official residency of the country's president. Built using the initiative of Nicholas I in 1849, and under the architect Konstantin Ton's supervision on a site where an old building used to stand that belonged to the Great Prince of Moscow. This gigantic building attracts attention due to the arches on its facade, but it will surprise you even more when you know that there are more than 700 rooms including the main, private, and service rooms. In this impressive place you can find all kinds of styles mixed together, ranging from renaissance rooms to the Byzantine-Russian style. What was initially the tsar's palace with its large main facade facing the Moskva River, has ended up being turned into a real architectural museum, as well as a complex that joins other smaller palaces.
