Tula Kremlin Museum, Tula

4.0
#1 of 28 in Sightseeing in Tula
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Tula holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tula Kremlin Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Tula

Accommodation in the industrial center of Tula is fairly limited compared to more popular tourist destinations. You can find several higher-end hotels both in the city center and in the more tranquil areas outside the city limits. Most hotels and bed and breakfasts in the city are mid-range establishments, offering cozy atmosphere and good selection of amenities at affordable prices. A couple of hostels and several apartments round out the lodging options.
