The Heart of Astrakhan is the Kremlin, a wonderful architectural ensemble. It is a famous monument of the Russian architecture and military engineering art of the end of the 16th century.
The Astrakhan Kremlin covers the territory of eleven hectares, the perimeter of it is 154 meters, and its walls are between seven and eleven meters high. The Kremlin was used as peculiar and the most absolute system for defense. There were three rows of cannon loop-holes. Through these loop-holes the defenders could deliver fire.
Uspenskyi cathedral is 75 meters high. It has 5 gold domes. In its outward mounting there are features of early baroque. From the west the place of execution, the so-called “Lobnoye Mesto” joined the cathedral. The Tsar decrees and sentences were announced here. Troitskyi cathedral consists of three churches: Troitskaya, Sretenskaya, Vedenskaya and two refectory chambers.
