Photographer's Note

Walking path inside the Kremlin National Historic Museum...To my best knowledge, to the right is Tretyakov Art Gallery, the biggest and most valuable collection of paintings, sculptures, ikons,books, historical manuscripts, graphics...
More information about Gallery can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tretyakov_Gallery
At the very end of the walking path one can see an old-style architecture building in red and white colors, it is one of the Kremlin's towers - Kytafya tower ( Кутафья башня). This is the only tower ( out of many) that was saved to its original condition, that protected Kremlin bridges that lead to inside of Kremlin. Tower ( 13.6 m high) was built in 1516 under the guidance of Aleviz Fryazin, architect from Milan.
