a walk across the bridge on the embankment circling the kremlin walls is divine, esp at sunset. its an easy and pleasant walk and triggered ur imagination of what it must had been to have had so much power and then lost all of it for the tsar.

Just walking the perimeter knowing that you were going to be inside the walls the next day, and that you were outside the Kremlin when just saying that word struck fear into people in days gone past.

The walls and towers of the Kremlin are really impressive. Seeing them from the red square made me already think to all the times I saw them in many movies. The are really big and are full of important moments across history.
