«The Grand Kremlin Palace at Twilight»

The night view of the architectural ensemble of Moscow Kremlin, the Grand Kremlin Palace, Annunciation Cathedral and Kremlin Towers, from Bolshoi Moskvoretsky bridge in a cool autumn evening at twilight before darkness. The Grand Kremlin Palace was built in 1838-1849 as the new imperial residence for Nicholas I by the project of prominent Russian architect Konstantin Ton. The building is around 50 m tall with dome and Flagstaff with about 700 rooms of ca. 20.000 sq.m. 16th-century Cathedral of Annunciation with beautiful shining onion gilded cupolas (domes), the domestic chapel of the Russian sovereigns, joins the Grand Kremlin Palace from its right side on the picture. The wall and towers of Moscow Kremlin were built in red brick at the end of 15th century with supervision of Italian architects during reconstruction of the city’s citadel during the reign of Ivan III the Great.
