After touring the Kremlin grounds and the cathedrals that are open to visitors, another must-see is the Armory. It is a true treasury that started as a collection of old state insignia, ceremonial and coronation attire of Russian tsars, and gold and silver items designed by Russian and foreign masters. The Armory also has a collection of coaches, arms, and horse harnesses and apparel.
On the other side of the walls of the Moscow Kremlin are Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Lenin Mausoleum and the Alexander Garden. The most famous Russian theater, the Bolshoi Theater, is located not far from the Kremlin. In 2016, the theater marked the 240th anniversary of its founding.
