This is another of the most impressive structures in the Cathedral Square. Getting a ticket to go inside and up the tower seems very challenging, however, and I was unsuccessful in my attempts. But still looks good even from the ground level.

This belltower has 22 bells, and unitl the late 19th. century it was forbidden to build a higher construction in Moscow. Still, being the highest point at the Kremlin, this bell tower is impossible to be overlooked.

From the top of the bell tower there is a great view on the Kremlin and Moscow. The climb is not very difficult.

Standing at the end of Cathedral Square, this Tower stands clear above the collection of Domes that surround Cathedral Square. One of a collection of buildings only accessible through a tour of the Kremlin, it forms an interesting marker for the Kremlin.
