Part 2: Moscow Was not Built in a Day

The city of Moscow's early history is connected with Prince Yuri Dolgoruky, who arrived on the territory of what was then the small settlement of Moscow on 4 April 1147. At that time, Moscow was a tiny fortress at the top of Borovitsky Hill. The online tour shows viewers fragments of the oak fortifications that made up the first wooden walls of the Kremlin. Viewers can also see images of the Kremlin's first stone walls, which arose in the late 14th century. Viewers will discover when the familiar red brick walls were erected and what other fortresses appeared in the 16th century.
