Greatness of Moscow as the seat of government of the Soviet Union back in 1918, in Lenin's government. Some places in the Kremlin open to the public and visited by many tourists. Since the Kremlin is also a center of government, sometimes it's tourist places closed to the public without prior notice. "To come here was better in groups arranged by travel agents. Often tourists disappointed because it was coming but could not get in," said Irine Alexandrova, our tour guide.

These places are frequented, among others, the Armory Museum is the oldest museum in Russia. Collections are so amazing, such as jewelry, weapons, and property of royal wealth.

Grief behind the beauty

Visiting Moscow in the summer, when the long day because the sun never really sunk at 22:00, a good time to enjoy the rich history, culture, and other popular places in Moscow. At least for the Kremlin and Red Square are spacious and attractive.

Red Square with a length of 695 meters and 130 meters wide was famous as a place of military parades and other celebrations. The word "red" instead of around the fortress of the dominant red or communist symbol. But the "red" in Russian also refers to the meaning of beautiful.

Each building in Red Square has its own legend. Here there are graves of Lenin, right in front of the fortress of the Kremlin, Saint Basil's Cathedral is famous for its beauty, GUM shopping center, as well as the Museum of History.

Body of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin's embalmed dead could be seen publicly since 1924.

The cathedral consists of nine chapels with the uniqueness of each symbol was designed based on strong beliefs, and is intended to provide an overview of the New Jerusalem, the Kingdom of Heaven which is described in the Book of Revelation.

The beauty of Saint Basil has also been tempting Napoleon. He insisted on going to move this to the Paris cathedral, but there is no adequate technology. Napoleon ordered that the cathedral was destroyed by detonating gunpowder, but a sudden rain. The destruction was total failure.

During the communist regime under the Bolsheviks, the cathedral was closed and church leaders were killed. Furthermore, during the reign of Stalin, his close friend, Lazar Kaganovich, who served the Red Square Reconstruction Planning Director, suggested that the cathedral was demolished.

The goal that the vast Red Square as well as facilitate the movement of public parades and vehicle movement in the field.

Luckily Stalin rejected the idea. Rejection thanks to the courage architects and observers of Russian culture, P Baranovsky. When ordered to tear down the church, he refused and threatened to cut his throat.

Then he sent a telegram at length about that refusal. Stalin eventually undo the destruction and as a reward, Baranovsky was rewarded with five years in prison.
