Historical heart and most beautiful place in this wonderful city. Museums, panoramic view of Volga river, oldest building in the city - Kremlin wall. Take your time, go for a walk. Than to museums or one of the restaurants around.

We were lucky and had a local tell us about the history here and how this fort had been used in the past. Inside the Kremlin there are some military equipment and other WW2 items. Beautiful place to watch the sunset over the river Volga.
