Moscow Kremlin + the Armoury chamber and the Diamond Fund

Duration — 4 hours
Proposed date: 07.07.2013

The Moscow Kremlin is one of the largest architectural ensembles in the world. It is home to the Moscow Kremlin State Museum of History and Culture.

The first Kremlin walls were built in the mid-12th century. Two hundred years later, Moscow became the capital of a small princedom and since that time, the Kremlin has been the residence of Russia’s rulers. Today, part of the Kremlin is occupied by presidential offices; this area is closed to visitors. But during our tour, you will visit the majestic whitestone cathedrals of Blagoveshchensky (the Annunciation); Arkhangelsky (built in the name of Archangel Michael); and Uspensky (the Assumption), where every tsar and emperor of Russia was crowned, the Church of the Deposition of Our Lady`s Robe, the Patriarch`s Chambers with the Church of the Twelve Apostles, and the Ivan the Great Bell Tower Ensemble.

They all have stunning architecture and magnificent inner decoration. You will be amazed, too, by the size of the Tsar Kolokol, the 200-tonne Tsar Bell. The art of casting was highly developed in Moscow many centuries ago; the Tsar Cannon is another fine example of the early masters` skills.

The Cathedral of the Assumption, built by architect Aristotle Fioravanti in 1475 — 1479, was the most important church in the country. All Russian tsars were crowned there.

The Cathedral of the Archangel, built by architect Aleviz Novy in 1505-1508, was the burial vault of the Grand Princes of Muscovy, of princes and Russian tsars up to the early 18th century.

The Cathedral of the Annunciation was the private church of the Grand Princes of Muscovy and, later, of Russian tsars. Master builders from Pskov built the cathedral between 1484 and 1489.

The Church of the Deposition of Our Lady`s Robe, built by Pskov craftsmen in 1484-1485, was the home church of the Russian metropolitans and, later, of the Russian patriarchs.

The Patriarch’s Chambers with the Church of the Twelve Apostles were built in 1653-1655 for Patriarch Nikon, the first Russian «faith reformator».

The Ivan the Great Bell Tower Ensemble was created during the 16th and 17th centuries. Between 1505 and 1508, Italian architect Bon Friasin directed the construction of the Bell Tower of Ivan the Great. A hundred years later, a new tier was added to it, and the tower reached 81 meters in height. In 1532-1552, a church was built next to the Bell Tower to the design of architect Petroch Maly. At the end of the 17th century, this church was transformed into an Assumption Belfry. The first floor of the Assumption Belfry now houses a museum exhibition hall.

You also visit the Armoury and the Diamond Fund.

The Armoury was first established as an arms and armour workshop attached to the royal court. Now the Armoury is a world — renowned museum, a unique treasure — house containing a wealth of articles of decorative and applied arts of Russia, European countries and of the Orient of the 4th to 20th centuries. The Armoury is located in a building specially erected for it by architect Konstantin Ton in 1844 — 1851.

Now, it displays ancient arms, the tsars` crown jewels and many magnificent works of art. Here, you will see unique specimens of Russian and foreign craftsmanship, royal regalia and gifts from ambassadors. You will admire the famous golden «cap» of Vladimir Monomakh, used to crown all Russian tsars until Peter I, and the imperial crown of Catherine I, made of gilded silver. The Armoury has the finest collection of old English silverware in the world, made by London silversmiths of the 16th and 17th centuries, Faberge Easter eggs and a unique collection of carriages spanning the 16th and 18th centuries. The collection makes it one of the most impressive museums in Moscow.

The Diamond Fund was added to the Armoury later.

This amazing exhibition displays unique state treasures, including a large imperial crown of gold and silver, 4936 diamonds and pearls made for the coronation of Catherine the Great; the huge, world-famous Orlov (189.62 carat) and Shah (88.7 carat) diamonds; and the Big Bouquet, a magnificent piece of jewellery set with diamonds and emeralds from the 18th century.
