  • If you want, you can climb up to the bell but I hadn't known it before. Next time, I'll definitely climb up and enjoy the view over Kremlin.  more »
  • For two centuries this multi-storey building was the tallest building in Russia. The last floor with zolochjonnym dome was built on the orders of Boris Godunov at the end of the 16th century. The Bell Tower looks unusually light and slim. Each tier has a window closing, with only the drum they are false. The drum itself is decorated with gilded with a commemorative inscription mentioning early Godunovyh dynasty. Now inside the museum dedicated to the history of architecture and construction of the Kremlin.

  • In the very centre of Moscow on the Cathedral square of Kremlin there situated the bell tower of St. John Climacus, more known as the Ivan the Great bell tower. It unites all the ancient temples of Moscow Kremlin into one whole architectural ensemble. In 2008 the temple celebrated its 500th birthday. The first church was built in this place in 1329 as a tower for John Climacus’s bell.
  • Horrible, view is quite good, but the guide though he spoke English and almost full English tour group, has to be prodded to give any information in English. Certainly not worth the 250 rubles or the time to get there.
  • Great views of Moscow, but odd opening schedule. Double check with the website for hours
  • Beautiful place
