Kremlin, veliky novgorod, Russia

Enclosed by red-brick walls, the Kremlin, also known as the Detinets, sits at the heart of this ancient city on the banks of the Volkhov River. Built mainly in the early 16th century, it was one of the most impregnable citadels in Russia. It now encloses a selection of buildings from various eras, ranging from the Gothic Granovitaya Palata (Chamber of Facets), dating from 1433, to the 19th-century, bell-shaped Millennium of Russia Monument, which is crowned by a cross and the figure of a woman representing Russia.
