  • My friends and I recently visited Granovituju House, for me this is the place in the Kremlin are absolutely sacred and mystical. Can't believe that such beauty was born and developed power, with all its angels and demons, mystery and reality. Nothing has changed in Russia since. But to understand Russia, though not much, visit Granovituju.

  • Long wanted to get here, and that's failed. Though and had to stand in line, but still a history-it's worth it. Is considered to be the oldest stone buildings in the capital. This rather unusual name Chamber received thanks to its eastern façade, which was trimmed with faceted stone rustication.
