We saw the bell towers from inside the Kremlin premises. They look royal and imposing. Not sure if people can go inside it. We didn't have enough time to explore the towers from closeby.

The bell tower and annex was built in 1505 and is 266 ft high. It is easily seen while walking about Moscow. We were not able to enter during our time in Moscow.

This is another of the most impressive structures in the Cathedral Square. Getting a ticket to go inside and up the tower seems very challenging, however, and I was unsuccessful in my attempts. But still looks good even from the ground level.

There was an exhibit of outstanding Japanese Kimonos when we visited in Sept. Some really incredible design work on them. Very intricate. Can't imagine how long some of the work must have taken.
