Many are unaware that there is more than one Kremlin in Russia. However, the Moscow is unique because it is not just a historical fortification. It is the heart of Russia, the main spiritual and political centre of the country and its pride and glory. It is the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation and all of Moscow's sightseeing routes lead to here.
