This spiritual segment of the Kremlin includes several enormous cathedrals and the Ivan the Great Bell Tower, the watchtower for the Kremlin, which would sound its 21 bells to warn of an approaching enemy.

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of state institutions and offices. To understand where modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State Historical Museum on Red Square.
