Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow - RUSSIA - UNESCO #545

Another card from Russia and another Kremlin postcard! This one was a direct swap I made before receiving the other two and it shows the Red Square in a nice panoramic photo and from a different angle - I really like St Basil's, it's awesome! Thank you very much Julia, I love your card. This postcard took 34 days to arrive!

UNESCO #545 - Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow - RUSSIA
 
Inextricably linked to all the most important historical and political events in Russia since the 13th century, the Kremlin (built between the 14th and 17th centuries by outstanding Russian and foreign architects) was the residence of the Great Prince and also a religious centre. At the foot of its ramparts, on Red Square, St Basil's Basilica is one of the most beautiful Russian Orthodox monuments.
