Not sure what this building is, but it looked important. Looked like a police station or court building of sorts, lots of police or military personnel outside.
Can't find a place to park? Why not the sidewalk? We see this everywhere!!
McDonald's anyone? :)
Not easy to order!

Need your trees trimmed? Just cut the tops off them! They are like this throughout the city.
Very cool door in the wall
This seriously looked like a jail cell in the middle of the park, had bars on the windows, strange
Very large tree
Incredibly cool rock wall
Monument listing the names of 33 “Cities of Military Glory”

Changing of the guard
Tomb of the unknown soldier. This is a memorial to the Soviet soldiers that died in WWII. Tomb contains ashes of an unknown soldier killed in 1941's Battle for Moscow. There is an eternal flame, inside contains a bronze star, and on the granite stone reads "Your name is unknown, your deeds are immortal"
To the right of the tomb, lining the walkway are dark red porphyry blocks with incapsulated soils from hero cities, Leningrad, Kiev, Stalingrad, Odessa, Sevastopol, Minsk, Kerch, Novorossiysk, Tula and Brest, Murmansk and Smolensk (thanks Wikipedia!) ; )
LOVE this building! I believe its the State History Museum.
And the funky orange one behind it is pretty as well
And now pics from within the Kremlin...
The Annunciation Cathedral
Home church of the Great Moscow Princes and later the Russian Tsars
The Archangel Cathedral
This the burial place of the Great Princes, local princes, and Tsars
The Bell Tower of Ivan the Great
Entrance to the Archangel Cathedral
The Assumption Cathedral
Place where the Russian Tsars and Emperors were crowned, was also the country's central place of worship.
The Church of the deposition of the Robe of the Holy Virgin
The church served as the private chapel of the Patriarch of Moscow, but during the mid-17th century it was taken over by the Russian royal family
The front of the Arsenal, it's the former armoury.
You can see the cannon's out front.
