When we say “Kremlin”, we immediately think about Moscow Kremlin and the word is often used as a synonym for “the Russian government”, as this is where the country’s president has his office. In reality, in Russian Kremlin (Кремль) means “fortress” or “citadel” and many old Russian cities and towns have their own kremlin. It is a fact, on the other hand that the Moscow Kremlin is in many aspects the hearth of the hole country. First of all, the site has been continuously inhabited by Finno-Ugric peoples since the 2nd century BC. The Slavs occupied the south-western portion of Borovitsky Hill (or Kremlin Hill) as early as the 11th century, as evidenced by a metropolitan seal from the 1090s which was unearthed by Soviet archaeologists in the area. The word “Kremlin” was first recorded in 1331. In the second half of the XV century, Grand Prince Ivan III organised the reconstruction of the Kremlin, inviting a number of skilled architects from Renaissance Italy, including Pietro Antonio Solari, who designed the new Kremlin wall and its towers, and Marco Ruffo who designed the new palace for the prince. It was during his reign that three extant cathedrals of the Kremlin, the Deposition Church, and the Palace of Facets were constructed. The highest building of the city and Muscovite Russia was the Ivan the Great Bell Tower, built in 1505–08 and augmented to its present height in 1600. The Kremlin walls as they now appear were built between 1485 and 1495. This 600-year-old red fortress is a sight to behold and I think that at night it is spectacularly illuminated. When the sky is overcast the clouds over Moscow reflect the light from the bustling metropolis below, often turning a strange purplish hue, but on clear nights you can still get an excellent tonal separation between the brightly light white buildings and the dark sky. The red stars atop the various towers are also illuminated and they stand up beautifully, I think.
