Tower Bezymyannaya 1


The First Bezymyannaya tower that was earlier known as Porokhovaya (Gunpowder) Tower

A tower in a Kremlin wall which goes along the rover Moscow and stands near the Tainitskaya tower.

This square tower of the southern wall was built in 1480 but had been rebuilt many times since that time.

For example, in 1574, an artillery supply depot blew up inside the tower and it was rebuilt.

In 1770, it was taken down for construction of Bazhenov Kremlin palace and reconstructed in 1783.

In 1812, it was blown by French army during their back track, and once again the tower was rebuilt in accordance with the project of architect Bove.

The tower has a simple rectangular pyramidic roof. Inside the tower there are two levels of arched roof halls. The height of the tower is 34 meters.
