City: Moscow

Moscow Kremlin Wall (??????????? ?????). a defensive wall that surrounds the Moscow Kremlin, recognizable by the characteristic notches and its twenty towers, the oldest one, Tainitskaya dates to 1485 whilst the newest one-Tsarskaya to 1680. First part of the Wall made in 1156. - With an outer perimeter of 2235m, the Kremlin appears as a loose triangle, deviating from the geometric ideal on the southern side where instead of a straight line, it repeats the contours on the original hill on which the Kremlin rests. Some places ranges from no more than 5 metres quadrupling to 19m elsewhere. The thickness of the walls also varies from 3.5 to 6.5m. The top of the walls, along their entire length, have outwardly-invisible battle platforms which also range from 2 to 4.5m in width (in proportion to the thickness). A total of 1045 double-horned notched "teeth" crown the top of the walls, with a height ranging from 2 to 2.5m and thickness from 65 to 75cm.
