The Kremlin is the oldest part of Moscow. It was built in the 12th century and since the city has grown around it. Nowadays the Kremlin stands in the very center of the Russian capital. For centuries, it has served as the focus of political life among Russians. It was the place from which Imperials Russia czars ruled till the 18th century and where Soviet leaders governed the USSR since 1918.

The Moscow Kremlin is actually a complex of buildings surrounded by a two kilometers long wall. The word Kremlin means fortress and there are dozens of Kremlins around Russia. Certainly the most famous one is the Moscow Kremlin.
