Stand Being set up for the coming victory. A here in Russia. Made the ninth the most significant. Day in the Russian calendar the biggest event of the year and Red Square intrinsically. Associated. With, Victory Day with, military parades perhaps, the two most, famous being and November, the 7th 1941. When the red army marched through Red Square then right off to, the front lines to fight the Nazis than, the first Victory Day in, 1945. When. Victory over, Nazi. Germany and the Nazi, forces was marked here and in fact every year Victory. Day is commemorated. Is remembered, on mass scale, there's parades, and processions. It's, really something you have to see, it's just the scope of it the scale of it absolutely it's. Epic. Victory, here on Red, Square. So. Victory day in Red, Square. Red. Square Christ. I approach it in Russian an, interesting, fact Christ, I originally, made beautiful, in, Russian and only evolved. In recent, times to, come to being red and with that red square which is the, symbol. It, represents. Russia. When you think of Russia this. Is perhaps your first associations. And Basil's Cathedral constructing. The orders of the man we know is Ivan the Terrible between 50 55 and 1561. And in fact the tallest building in Russia until around 1600. S. They. Like the Kremlin to my left which we'll come to later some. Basil's Cathedral is open, to, the public you can go, inside and check our which. Is what I'm to do just now. 500. Rubles about six pounds in the current exchange rate. The. Design absolutely. Breathtaking. Ten of. These signature, onion. Domes, rising. Into the sky like. A bonfire even, we're built today it, would be an outstanding achievement, in architecture. Each of them incredibly, intricate. Complex. Just. Astounding. Now, legend, has it that when some, basil Cathedral was completed, a van, the table was, so intent, that the beauty would never be duplicated, or, replicated, that he had the architects, in Van yakovlev blinded. But that would seem to be an open, leaf because his record of Evonik of life working in several other significant. Projects. So, the large red building behind me the History Museum of, Russia. But, Volta there's no time to, everything or even a fracture there's just so much to do in Moscow we will be here until the end of time but what we are going to do is check out this impressive. Imposing. Structure, to my left the, shopping arcade room. The first shopping arcade in Russia 125. Years ago and to this day the most famous, iconic. That's, going to look at Google. This. Is cool and exhibition, of, Land Rovers here and GU my love Land Rovers in fact not only look. What we got. Daniel. Prager, James Bourne Bear, Grylls. When. Drove a ball Cole Smith. As, you get the idea British icons. Here. Jimmy. All those obviously a bit of a tool but in any case that things. Are believes it's their kind, of best of Britain here be represented. Land. Rover is obviously a symbol of the UK and in fact ahead of me we've got this quite. Stunning. Land Rover Discovery decked, out in for, long. Touring. Kay all the apparel, including. Camel. Trophies, we see a Russian.
Flag On the bonnet. There. We go camel, trophy, look. At this. We've, got a canoe, or kayak aloof. Whichever. Is. And, the roof is the genius of, engineer. Vladimir. Shaku, levan it remains to. This day a masterpiece. Of, engineering, have a look at it. Now, the original name of Goomer, translate. Is something like upper, trading rose and good. To, this day is a place the well-heeled, of Moscow, to come and partake. Of the exclusive. Elites boutiques. And. Also place for tourists, to come and walk around and just marvel, in the wonder. Of it, all, you've never seen a shopping center like it in your life. People. Love the ice creams of goombas real thing. Tutorial Moscow thing to do to come to Google and, have an ice cream. So. As you can see over. Here we've got some Basil's, of Kremlin Red, Square just a couple hundred meters away we've come up to this mound or landscape, to really cool. And if. We look over there we've got Perry Ashi bridge, it's actually not quite a bridge it's, well, let's all look and see what it is. So. As we can see giving just incredible, views up and down the, mosque wall the landmarks, near and far, up from it this new MP theater this open-air theater behind me as. We see nothing in play at the moment there's still people, sitting out enjoying the Sun this spring, day a bit breezy as it is but still incredibly. Beautiful, we're in Moscow in fact just behind that white building Dom Mac, a tilt just quoits one. Of the most, elite apartment, buildings of the Soviet Union and to this day remaining one, of the top places to live, in Moscow so you have to be pretty well heeled to, be living in that white building behind with that rather imposing Soviet. Star at, its crest. It's. About time to say our farewells to red square as we can see it's, closed as rehearsals, for, Victory Day but we can hardly leave without, a word about, the. Legendary. Concerts, to have taken place in Red Square you can't quite think the Red Square that to give the concerts here everyone has played here from Shakira. The. Scorpion. Of course Paul McCartney, in 2003. But, did you know is that little loans by, very own madness than. A concert, of sorts here in 1992 organized not very well organized by, top of the Pops but, the nutty boys the, very same have played right before some, Basil's Cathedral here on Red, Square.
And. That no time, to take one step beyond. We've. Come to deny the vidiian hey park simply. My favorite, Park in, Moscow, it is just, magnificent, and it's actually bigger in territory, with the Principality, of Monaco let's. Check it out. So, welcome to the video 1/2 park as it is now here in Moscow. This iconic. Park you listing a little in fact a lot like. A building site I've been coming here for years in fact there's two loads of people coverage I've, never seen it like this but the idea is together. Looking absolutely amazing. For the time of the World Cup so when you come and see this for yourself in, June this should all be complete, and, looking absolutely fantastic. As, I say the idea is to get this park which, is over 80 years old at its best ever level, so the. Character though it's really just a hub, of activity just, a high with building, and construction. As, work goes on a pace to, get this looking at, its best ever here. In Moscow, Davidian our Park we're, gonna go check it out. Now. This is one of the largest scale reconstructions. To have ever taken, place at this legendary. Park which was first established in, 1935. As the all-union, agricultural, exhibition. Actually had, a turbulent first few years it wasn't completed in time before the war was delayed and then had to be closed during because. Of the war was only then reopened, in, 1954. Today. Even when there's construction going on the. Vidiian half park is a beloved, place of, Muscovites, and tourists alike to, come for a as, I say Russian for guca a stroll. Tomorrow. Is. Iconic. Kinds, of rupees. There are friendly, nations, surprising, 50, nations of. The former Soviet, Union it's the centerpiece, to the video and her one. Of the most spectacular sights, in Russia. The, goal figures. Representing. The. Republic. By, the way wait until the vidiian ha turns into a winter, wonderland beyond, your wildest dreams there's, slides. And, this fairs and, this is actually a huge skating. Rink you don't take my word. For that I was here a winter with leis from, our full britain Crimea check. It out. We. Are going hopefully. To the top of this tower I'm. Gonna slay, down in, the snow on, a rubber ring yes. So much fun. It's. Hard to work climbing those stairs, you. Carry a sword ends muscleman. Welcome. To Moscow. Ibaka. This. Pavilion behind me this rather, well. It's just it's majestic, isn't it I mean it's awesome. Building, this pavilion, is actually. Dedicated to the Ukrainian, Soviet, republic, as, new attractions, being opened the vidiian ha all the time large-scale. - behind me this regime Russia my, history, open in, 2016. I remember if I was him 2015. It was being constructed, so just a huge, scale museum, eminently, worth checking out but if we were to visit all of the museums in Moscow. Worth checking out this document - were literally God forever. Over, there at this huge, scale aquarium, which, only opened in the past couple of years another, new addition and look at this rocket, Vostok, a. Symbol. Of the vidiian harp arc. Now, in so many times the pavilions, would, house conferences. And seminars, and, events there, were some, 300, events a year here, in the video in ha attracting. 11 million-plus, visitors, to. The park since. Then the pavilions, have, become well their museums, their cafes, or restaurants or. Sorts, of interesting. Things is a cinema, over. There and. This, one here cosmos. Space. Mechanics. And electrics. And. Agriculture. For the Soviet Union is. Appealing. So let's go and see what's. Inside so. This, turns out to be, the. Aerospace, and aviation center, a museum that actually only opened a few days ago. You. Tell me a couple of interesting facts, about the museum. Just. Whistle. And. The. Original, suit, vehicle of Yuri Gagarin here, he. Used, it on a 12 April, 1961, to. Return. To us. Of, this here. Just an amazing, historical artifact, the, very capsule, in which Yuri Gagarin returned, to Earth after the Vostok 1 space, expedition. Of 1961. April, the, 12th and this the actual capsule, which, he returned to, Earth as we can see it's. Charred there from the heat of reentry. And it's here in the vidiian half just. Amazing. Historical artifact. The. Capsule, from the Vostok 1, space. Expedition. What, underneath, just now this recently opened aerospace, museum in the video and a heart is an exact replica, of the famous MIR, Space Station one, of the main attractions of this museum and I, think you can actually go, in it so. While you can't actually go in this MIR Space Station itself. There's observation. Power so you can look in you can also get right, up close to it and there is something else here but you can go into. That, was so cool. That was a Mexican. I was, amazing. Fantastic. Great we. Were happy to hear it I was, in the simulator.
Yeah, It was real adventure, great. After. My adventure, I came to the nearby. Exhibition. Centre because they still hold regular large-scale, exhibitions, of Davidian half to check out this. Exhibition. Dedicated to the theme of Education. Now. As you leave the vidiian hi you can't help but be struck by, this. Silver. Shard, soaring. Into, the sky. With. A rocket, on top even, a wallet represents, what's here, the, Museum of cosmonautics. Which. I've heard that I've seen is amazing, however, I do think that one Space Museum in a day is enough, and in fact if, we look over here we can see there's. Something even taller than the silver shard, stretching. Into the sky. That. Is Austin Kino TV, tower the. Tallest freestanding, structure. In Europe, the 11th tallest, in the whole world. I actually. Visited there, in February Valentine's Day, have, a look. Simply, what we're looking, over what's the name features, that we're seeing, just now we look over. Well. Actually now, we're, a. Wonderful, city and well. There we can see Moscow, CC. Hocking. Buildings. We. Can see the. Call. Me. Come. On what's. Wrong, Oh. My. Name is Sergey yeah, you from Moscow yes, so. Sankey if you had to describe masters. In, five words someone, who's never been to Moscow how, to describe, Moscow, well, this is the most wonderful. City. The city, has its own history. For, several, centuries and. This. History, we, can kill can. Fill the role named streets. We, can feel through different, kind of buildings, and it's, amazing, actually because. Now we have some modern ones, and. Not far away from them we can see a kind of rain since I'm. In 17th. Century, or so what'd, you say surgeons the World Cup soon there's lots of people from all over the world coming to Moscow for the first time what. Would you say to them. We're happy to see you here in Moscow, and, go to visit our function into the tower. So. They were looking at behind me in this roller, atmospheric. They in Moscow, this, mass sat to Peter the. Great legendary, Russian. Sights, 98. Meters it's, the 8th Paula, statue, in the world it is immense. So. The statue was put there in, 1997. When, I first saw it my, pressure was just I mean wow it's awesome, it's just the kind. Of scope of it just blows you away but. It's actually bent usually, divisive. And controversial. For. Many reasons. Firstly. The, design it frequently appears in lists. Of ugliest. Statues, in the world. Then. There's. Peters lone aversion. To Moscow, in fact even went so far as to moving the capital does. A Petersburg. Mendes. Reports, it was originally, intended to be a statue of Italian, Explorer Christopher, Columbus. It's. All of this and then, you compare and start to understand, why reportedly. Moscow, authorities have been trying to offload the statue for. Many years including offering it to some Petersburg, itself. Their. Declines and, several, other cities around, Moscow, but it's here it divides, opinion and it's something you definitely have to see in any case when you come to Moscow in fact you can hardly not see its immense. And it's lit up at night, and. I open it all secret to you I rather like it. So. It's evening time in. Moscow, absolutely. Magical. The, Sun setting we. Can see the. Spectacular. Scenes. All, around me and Moscow by evening is quite something just to stroll around and marvel at the beauty of, it all. So. The wine has changed, we followed the wind of change down. In this beautiful spring, day to what we can see behind me officially. By order of lane in the Central Park of Culture and relaxation. But of course known around, the world as Gorky. Park the, city's iconic. Legendary. Gorky. Park. Now. What to say about Gorky, Park founded. In, 1928. 300. Acres absolutely. Beloved. By Muscovites, and visitors, alike.
Just Now of course it's Monday it's a working day, so. There's fewer crowds but, that means you can enjoy the promenades and the boulevards, without that, weekend when this place is absolutely packed, out it's tired and in fact I'm hoping to. Come back to Gorky Park before, heading off from Moscow to show you is it is the, weekend just a mass of activity. I was, actually here a winter, when the place was as with, the VD in har Park or winter. Wonderland. Have a look. Now. Gorky Park people, absolutely love to cycle. Skateboard. Rollerblade, Segway. And all the rest of it that weekend it's really quite something to see but one of the reasons I wanted to show you Gorky Park with. Fewer people was really pay more attention to, the, details, and we'll have a look at, these park benches, sculpted. In to, the embankment and in fact everything is clean. It's modern, its, new, and, in fact that's because in 2011. The park was given a complete. Reboot, they're around a hundred illegal. Objects, and attractions, removed. The, park was given an overhaul, and the aim was to make it into, a global, park. And it is now famous all over the world it's an epicenter, of Moscow. And as. We can see we look around everything is clean, an. Extra condition, beautiful. And it is indeed, one, of the most famous parks, in the world Gorky. Park. So. We see all around me here the maintenance team working. Keeping, the park clean and order, this new ass foul the lawns new. Flower beds there's, Wi-Fi. Everything. In Gorky Park is. Just at the highest level, it's just one of the best, parks, in the world and, we are going to come back here at the weekends. We're. About now Moscow. City one of the symbols of modern. Moscow. And Russia, it's just. Immense, scale. Scope. The power the. Ambition. The, glory, the, beauty, the, wild, factor. Moscow. City. As, you expect, these towers, host top-end, restaurants. Offering spectacular, panoramic. Views of the likes but what I'm, here to check out and actually what I've heard is a thing is kind of untrained is to say half-caf, watch travel documentaries, they say for, example I'm going to show you a Moscow hack and then do like letters. But what. I'm trying to show you is a little hack a, tip as. What. Additional would call it it's, apparently one of these towers hosts not a top payment Hotel other like Spanish your hostel, so, you can stay in these towers, in one of them in a hostel, so I'm gonna go and check out this. Hack. Tip. For. Moscow. Ha. So, it's true, on the 43rd, floor of, this skyscraper. In, Moscow City originally a hostel, tuesdaya, but. Starting from just, over 20 years a night and for. That all of this can. Be yours I mean just look at these, views out of this world and you're just, unbelievable. Incredible. So. That is as they would call it a. Moscow. Hostel, hack, all of this for. Bit over 20 years amazing. Now. Moscow of course offers, a plethora, of, possibilities when, it comes to hotels. Hostels. Places. To stay and all the rest of it what I've come now is one of perhaps. The most famous Hotel complexes. Is my liver actually built, for the 1980, Summer Olympics. And it was the biggest hotel complex in the world until overtaken by the MGM Grand in 1993. So it's a real, kind of hotel City behind. Me here or in fact in front of me now as. We can see we're gonna go and check it out. Now. This complex has the capacity for over 3,500. People at, any one time along, with conferences, and all the rest of it so it's a real epicenter. Of Moscow, accommodation. In fact when I came for the first time in, 2009.
To Moscow as a tourist it, was this very hotel to my right that I found online and chose to stay in there quite affordable. And although the design is the, exterior is Soviet, which, is also, to. My mind quite, fantastic the. Tiers are very modern of what you would expect of a modern hotel, and this one here is called alpha. We've got better. Vague, gamma. And Delta, together, and these all comprise the ismaïl of a hotel complex which offers amazing views of this around the area which, is another reason why I've, come here. Now, of course we all heard there was a Kremlin Red Square but here is. My lever behind. Me is what's. Called the white Kremlin let's, go and check, out. The. White in Kremlin here is my 11 unlike the, Red Square Kremlin, this one has never filled any authoritative. Or, administrative. Functions. It was created, at the start of the 19th century purely. As an entertainment, complex which, it remains to, this day there's, museums, churches. Stalls. Kiosks. All. For. Tunis in fact we can see here we've, got a. Busload. Of school kids. Coming. To take in the white Kremlin. It. Trust, you. And. This actually interestingly. This. Church was constructed in the year 2000. It's, a pink Lenin so. This is a pink Lenin, and. The. Writer Maxim, Gorky, I. Didn't. Expect to see a pink layer in here. They. Alone a blue Maxim Gorky. But. The headline is the pink alone. Very. Nice very nice wonderful. Wonderful. Where you come from from. Thailand. Pleased to meet you ladies. Lovely. Selfie there there we go. Cheese. That's behind me the, agency. Ministry, of joy which is responsible for all, of the weddings, and events which, take place and. The territory, of his by the way. Now. I'll be coming to Moscow for years and this is just one of the many places that in, fact it's my first time here I never. Been before and that's Moscow, just. Offers. You so many unexpected I. Mean pink Lenin we. Were four, things. To see him for those that we coming for years there's always something new and, unexpected. Brilliant. Oh it's. A pre ad no. Doesn't. Come in so to be on a hill or to pray a missionary, partager washes, mother who sue death spicy about us. We're. Not just now we, are back in central. Moscow, one, of the most famous streets in the city and in fact it's the real tourist, mecca the real just, draw, tourists. And people, from all over the world we can see just crowds, Sergey, it's absolutely, buzzing, here and. It is actually a historical, Street. As well as one of the oldest streets in Moscow dating, from the 15th century and for centuries it's had a reputation as, the Bohemian. Can, have artsy, center. Of Moscow the kind of alternative, in fact we can see because there's all sorts of different concessions. We've got up there the Museum of Records and its banks we've got here rest. Strong we do hear souvenir. Shops, offering, Russian fur hats rush, of baseball, caps and all the rest of all sorts of Russia related, paraphernalia but, of course your back hasn't been exempt from globalization. We've, got KFC. There and rather, interestingly here, we have a Ukrainian. Flag because this is the Ukrainian, cultural. Center so interestingly despite all of the dreadful. Things that Ukrainian, Ukrainian government, tells us about Russia and Russian aggression and, all the rest of it here in the center of Moscow we have a Ukrainian, cultural. Center peacefully. Existing. This in any case is just the street with just, a million things go on just. Scissor people, and all sorts of activity. And hustle. And it is the place to come in Moscow if you want to do what people call people. Watching so let's have a look and, they are backed. Here's. The place. That's a joke. The tiny case Russian, dolls here. Oh. So, as any tourist in Russia of course we're all at your Russian dolls, and. The our bat is a place. And. I'll give you another hack as, the court you can negotiate price, of it. By. The way let me tell you an interesting fact about the old bat this was the first street in the Soviet Union to be pedestrianised, the first, pedestrianised.
Zone In the whole Soviet Union this, is it. So. That was the old up by this is the new our, back you see not pedestrianised, the hub of, traffic. And their. People passing regret, tomorrow, Putin, gastro. Bar and, these buildings. They. Can advance in, different. Goals it's quite a sight to behold this that, you are back. Fascinating. Story. This. Metro station, was constructed by 1925. Religion. But. If they didn't finish it for almost 40, years I, was, only with the completion of the ad kriti, arena, in. 2014. As the Spartak, Moscow, pray. This, Metro is complete so we can see. Smart. Visit. Crickey. Arena translates, as open, arena, although. During the World Cup 2018. A which is going to host five. Matches. It. Will also be there as a Sparta, arena. So, I've got my Russia top on to show solidarity, because. This stadium played host to the Russian national team as well as Spartak, Moscow, the most successful, team in the history of Russian. Football named, after this the. Gladiator, Spartacus, behind. Me this rather impressive. Figure and this just. Hugely, impressive. Stadium, here, the. Spartak, arena at Krita knee arena. Now. This stadium began, construction. The original, design in, 2007. But was then stopped, in, 2010. Because the original design was deemed too ordinary so, they went back to the drawing board and came. Up with this about which you said many things but you certainly cannot say it's, ordinary, this is true. State-of-the-art. Stadium. Design just. Fantastic. Stuff, modernistic. Futuristic. And it holds over. 45,000. Spectators. Well. We can see behind me there Luzhniki, stadium, I've. Got my three lines on I'm here I'm in the mood and this the, largest, football stadium in Russia. The name Luzhniki, translates. Roughly, as meadows that we can see all around this beautiful, panoramic. Scene but, more importantly, this is the main stadium of the World Cup 2018. There's going to be seven matches here including. The World Cup final, we. See this panoramic, point here overlooking the Luzhniki people, love coming here taking photos. Looking. At the views. And, who complained I'm sure you're come here yourself when. You must go just, to take it it's amazing. So beautiful hello. See here we've got another, mass photo, taking, place with, a backdrop of this, stadium and just an amazing. Stadium an amazing, story constructed. Between 1955. And 1956. In, 450. Days such a short space of time bringing. Materials, from all over the Soviet Union from Armenia from, Ukraine from Belarus, to, construct what was at the time a, world-leading. Stadium. What is after recent renovation, of 2013. Again a world-leading staining one more just, a work of our a work of architecture, that just, to look at is just, fills you full of, the, mood of sporting. Magnitude. Of great, sporting. Moments that capacity times of the soviet union was over a hundred thousand hundred three thousand the capacities, of this day in fact nowadays rolla is eighty-one, thousands, is still one of the biggest names in europe and just to look at I mean, you just feel just.
The, Sense of. Sporting. Magic. Here in Moscow. Welcome. Welcome. To Russia. And. While we're speaking about memoral, sporting, moments the, Summer Olympics. 1980. Opening, and closing, ceremonies held at. Their stadium but we England fans would, most likely night for, the mm, hm measly final, man united vs. Chelsea, penalties. Romero. Escapes check, saves, terry. Steps, up slips, hits the post the heartbreak, the, dremen, and Giggs calmly. Slots and, decides in the, United States, the epic. Sporting. Moments and surely more to come and the World Cup 2018. More drama, more, emotion. More heartbreak, but let's hope above all the, we England fans see each other here on, July the 15th. 2018. For, the World Cup final, let's hope for those years of hurt finally, come turn, ends the, dream lives on. A. Little. Message to people. From all over the world from Russia before. The World Cup. Welcome. To Russia. Great. Country. In the world. So, here we are Manezhnaya square. Here just, down from Red Square we can see up, to my left building. Here of course we saw from the other side the Museum of history this iconic. Four. Seasons, Hotel. Behind, me and in fact the centerpiece, of this, Square this statue to marshal. Zhukov. Now marshal, Zhukov Georgi Jukka, rose to the high rank in the Soviet Red Army, notable. In particular. For. His heroism in the, Battle of Berlin, in which his, heroic deeds were instrumental in, defeating, the, Nazi, so that statue there the, center point ascends, a piece and all around we can see there's. Tourists. There's just, all sorts of street. Theater to say there's Lenin strolling around as, Stalin. Posing, for a photo. There. We go. We. Can see, all. Around us roosters. There.

The place that, we're outside the ramparts. Off in the place that if you say Russia, to people most all over the world, the. First Association, will be, rambling.
And That is where we're going just now to, the Kremlin my. First ever time, going. Inside the Kremlin. So. It turns out to purchase tickets for the Kremlin is almost no cute. We're.

The first recorded use of the word Kremlin, entered. The history book to worry about now to, enter the, Kremlin. Okay. So wonder by the way the territory, of the Kremlin is 27. And a half Hector's, so. We're going to see a bit what we can today, wow, they can look down Alexander. Garden. Now the original Kremlin, was constructing, between 1482, -, 1495. In. Since then it's been synonymous with power. This is the, heart of Moscow. The heart of Russia, the seat of, power but of course it's also beloved. By tourists, we can see just Banks's, of tourists, from. All over the world. Asian. Here by, the looks and sounds and we can see over here again. Tourists. Everywhere. All. Over this territory. The. Kremlin. And. We've got these two, different balances, here looking like. Politicians. Or people. Looking. Like a delegation, perhaps. And. Then over here of course tourists. So the Kremlin fulfills. These two purposes. Of it is a tourist just. Absolute. The moat the most the number one spots in Moscow, but, it is also a working. Functioning. Seat. Of power, here. And. These here Russian, fuel can in 17th 18th, centuries, as, it says here preserved, in the Kremlin since the first half of the 19th century is monuments, of Military Glory moved. From the Arsenal in 2012. That the Kremlin is of course the, largest military fortress. The largest fortress in Russia, and it's. Evolved over the centuries if we look over here we. Can see of course in Basil's, and, red square and this spasskaya. Tower the. Star on top now they weigh around a ton each those stars way around the tunnel they actually rotate. With the wind and it was actually designed by an Italian architect, so the Kremlin has evolved from wood to stone to brick and it's, done so with, international. Participation. Over. The centuries. So, here is as I mentioned earlier the largest cannon. In, the world in. All its glory. And it really, is glory look. At it it's just something. To behold we can see here the Tarr's cannon, made from bronze, and 1586. And the. Moscow, cannon. Factory the master. Was designer, with Andre Chekhov, and then. This encasing. The wheels and. All of the etching is from, 1835. From some Petersburg, is 890 millimeter caliber. 40. Tons. Goodness. Me that is a cannon, as. I understand, only fired once. For. Ceremonial, purposes but. There is the. World's heaviest cannon. We see behind me a stage being, erected over, here there's, work going on, and. If we look all round of course we can see tourists. Being laid. In processions. In groups. Selfies. Is. All going on in the, Kremlin this is very. Much the. Place in Russia the, epicenter. The centerpiece, where if there's an event is upcoming Victory, Day it, will be here in the Kremlin that it's marked in spectacular, and ceremonial. Style. There are five palaces. Here there, are four cathedrals. That's, to put it into numbers there are 20 towers all of, all. The times of names but - they're called unnamed one and two, to, put it into politics, the. President of Russia President, Putin still has, his office here in the Kremlin still comes, to work in the Kremlin often by, helicopter. But very much comes. Here to, make decisions, for, Russia. From. The Kremlin. Let's have, a look. And. This here the largest bell in, the world although, as I read it was never a child because, as we can see there's. A bit missing but. Here is a game. The. Scale the the, magnitude of it and.
If We look over there if, you're getting spasskaya, tower now, in 1706. Peter. The, great brought and you clock here all the way from Amsterdam. It. Was transported, and 30 wagons, and every time now the, bells are chiming every British person can feel a sense of we. Did that because the chimes were. Designed by a British, engineer. Christopher. Holloway, in 1625. So. What you're hearing is a little bit of britain in the kremlin. In the heart of russia because. Those chimes. Were designed by a british, engineer. So, it's closing time now the chimes. Of struck is after 5:00 the. Kremlin is, closing, now we obviously got here later in the day had we got, here earlier we could have taken in the gardens, over there we could have walked in on the original, city, ramparts.
