First Kremlin was wooden. The next one was made from the white stone. Then it was rebuilt by Italian architects. They used white stone (for basement) and red bricks. In XVIII it was colored.
Kremlin was white before 1920-1930. Now it is red except one tower.

I am curious as to where important guests and dignitaries stay when they are visiting the Kremlin.  Would they stay in some part of the Senate or maybe in an annex of the Grand Palace?

Welkome to Kremlin!
We have not so many tourists in January and February.

As for ghosts, I know  about only one ghost in Kremlin - ghost of Iwan the Terrible.

Perhaps something will appear soon in English on this proposal.

For now, here is the Russian:
http://www.blagovest-info.ru/index.php?ss=2&s=7&id=58608

Pres. Putin has seriously suggested tearing down the Soviet office buildings inside the Kremlin in order to rebuild the Chudov and Voznesensky Monasteries and the Small Nicholas Palace -- in order to return to the Kremlin its pre-Revolutionary historical appearance.

There is even talk of opening the Spasky Gates for locals and tourists to use on foot.

Aha!

Paul Gilbert has now posted an article on the proposed Kremlin renovations in English:

When I read the article originally posted on eng.kremlin.ru there was a statement from Putin about making sure they were museums because people were already complaining that he had turned over to many properties to the Church.

Sadly, it was the first church to be pulled down within the Kremlin after the Bolsheviks came to power.

It was destroyed in 1928.
