#2 of 109 in Things to do in Tula
Don't miss the chance to visit Tula Kremlin Museum, an impressive historical monument and one of the city's main attractions. Located in the center of the city, the brilliantly preserved 16th-century fortress offers great views and gives you insight into the past. Inside the walls you will find two cathedrals, dating back to the 18th and the 19th centuries. The Assumption Cathedral is the older one, and its bell tower has been fully restored after damage from a 1936 fire. The newer Epiphany Cathedral houses a museum of weapons that showcases everything from medieval swords to Cold War firearms. Various museum exhibits are also displayed inside the kremlin towers. While visiting the exhibits requires admission fees, you can walk around the fortress and admire the architecture for free.

  • The Kremlin territory is not large, manicured green lawns. Impression only positive. There are souvenir tents in which predominantly sell sweets (cakes, sprinkled)

  • Tula Kremlin impresses with its size. He is not great in size, and the walls are not high. But he is perfect and cozy. On the territory of all pure, lawns trimmed. Stand bench. The territory is not loaded with superfluous buildings type stalls with souvenirs and fast food. Everything is neatly placed within its walls. Of the buildings is a restaurant and two Temple assumption and Epiphany. To inspect everything and buy souvenirs enough 1.5 hours.

  • The Kremlin territory beautiful, well-groomed, you can take a walk and see and sit on the benches) Climb on the wall (120)-very beautiful views will delight the eyes, and yes the photos are amazing. In 2-x towers there are small exhibitions. It is a pity that you cannot walk around the perimeter of the walls. Like everything nicely in the Kremlin, but somehow it never touches the soul, as in Kolomna. No power ...
