"The Great Kremlin Palace" Kremlin - Great Palace Tip by Sharrie

Kremlin - Great Palace, Moscow: 8 reviews and 18 photos


An impressive but rather "squarish" building. 125 m long!
Commissioned by Nicholas I in 1837 to be the residence of the royal family when they visited Moscow for holiday. The then capital was St. Petersburg.

Today, the halls on the first floor were used mainly for receiving foreign dignitaries.

The architect who built this palace also built the State Armoury - Konstantin Ton.
