Slavic town was founded here around 1000 years ago. Vyatichi, one of Slavic tribes, used to live here back then.

In 1156, Prince Yuri I Dolgorukiy (or «Yuri the long-armed» in Russian) also known as George I of Rus’ ordered to build a city in Moscow to protect the boundaries. It was supposed to be a wooden fortress surrounded by graff and earth wall.

In 1237, Kremlin was burnt by Mongols and Tatars.

Since 1990 Kremlin has been included into UNESCO World Heritage List.

Kremlin is the most ancient and basic part of the city. Moscow was built around Kremlin.

Moscow Kremlin is the residence of the President of the Russian Federation (in case someone didn’t know) and the main historical museum complex of the capital (although a lot of people think that it is closed for visitors).
