Kremlin - Ivan the Great Bell Tower, Moscow: 14 reviews and 27 photos
At the time of its building (1505-8), the Ivan the Great Bell Tower was, at 80+ metres, the tallest building in Moscow. Despite its height, its construction was solid and it was one of only a few buildings that escaped the destructive fires that swept through the Kremlin on several occasions.
The neighbouring Assumption belfry held a special exhibit (read: extra ticket) of Faberge eggs when we visited ~ you may be lucky enough to view them in their normal home, the State Armory. We were a bit put out that their "absence" from the Armory was unannounced, but the extra cost was still worthwhile ~ each tiny egg is a masterpiece.
