From the Kremlin + Armory Museum to the Cold War

Baltschug Kempinski - Moscow, Russia

The Kremlin c has been the heart of Russia for nearly 1,000 years. Enter within its massive walls for a tour of the Kremlin grounds including the 15th-century Assumption Cathedral, and the Imperial treasures of the Armory Museum.
