Tula Kremlin Museum, Tula

(3.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This fortress has stood against the numerous enemy troops since its construction (early 16th century)! Hordes of Dawlat Giray (during the reign of Ivan the terrible) besieged the fortress a few days, while troops of Tula and loss to Kazan. Destroyed wall, but pass it couldn't, because defending the elderly, women and children, per night patched-deluged introduced security holes! Kudos to the defenders of the Tula Land for all times!

  • The perimeter of the Temple in the middle. Worth a visit are the torture Chamber there HA in the Tower will tell about the medieval armour and sword fighting. Souvenirs are expensive, Belevskaja pastille is cheaper than in stores.

  • Very good impression left Tula Kremlin. A beautiful place. You can book an individual tour (1000 rubles for up to 5 people). On the territory of the Kremlin is also a Museum of arms, Museum of samovars. In trading numbers you can buy a variety of souvenirs. Here is a shop of confectionery factory "Yasnaya Polyana". Such a variety of delicious cakes I haven't seen ever! Also by appointment, you can visit the master-class on making and painting cakes with tea (600 rubles per person).
