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

Today I've got tho amazing cards picturing the Kremlin and the Red Square. In the first one we can see a beautiful and unusual angle shot of one of the Kremlin Stars (there are four stars there, one in each major tower, since the '30s replacing the two-headed eagles of the tzars) - thank you very much Krylataba for this card and the awesome stamp you used. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
UNESCO #545 - Kremlin Star, 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.
