The Kremlin - general information

(1/17) > >>

I know that kremlin was not used by the romanovs but does anyone know a good site with nice pictures?  i'VE SEEN SOME IN A MAGAZINE when a greek singer was in moscow for a concert and they gave her a special tour even in rooms not open to the public and they were impressive!


Hi ilias !

The Imperial Family lived within the Kremlin when they were in Moscow. There residence was the Grand Palace.

The President of Russia uses this palace today for ceremonial occasions.


Oh my God! It is in such great shape!

So I'm guessing it was never destroyed by the germans in WWII?

The Grand Kremlin Palace was featured in an issue of Architectural Digest in the early 1990s-I don' have the exact reference at hand.

Two other books with a lot of interior photos:

Markova, G.  The Great Palace of the Moscow Kremlin.  Leningrad: Aurora Art Publishers, 1981.

Rodimzeva, Irina and Nikolai Rachmanov and Alfons Raimann.  The Kremlin and Its Treasures.  New York: Rizzoli, 1987.

You can also buy a video called "Behind Kremlin Walls" that tours these rooms.

Note, though, that all of these appeared before the destruction of the Hall of Congresses and restoration of the two original parade halls-the Hall of the Order of St. Alexander Nevsky, and the Hall of the Order of St. Andrei.
