We are in the main palace of Russia – in the Kremlin of Moscow. Adult citizens of the city still remember its marble staircases, labyrinths of endless corridors and halls, red carpets on the floor. They used to run there, sit on the throne and even paint mustanches on faces of the statues. But then all the locked of the Kremlin were changed, and they started to repair it. But today the palace does not thrill as it used to twenty years ago. And how can it thrill when even ermine skins are plastic now?
This is Alexander Hall.
St. Gerorge’s Hall.
One of the main staterooms of the palace. It was called in honor of the Order of St. George, approved by Catherine II in 1769 – it became the highest military award of the Russian Empire.
It’s the view from the palace balcony.
