The Kremlin


I didn’t know what a Kremlin was until yesterday. I knew of “the” Kremlin of course, the famous building in Moscow. However, I didn’t realise that a Kremlin is a kind of communal castle and there are in fact several. I suppose it’s a matter of English grammar and the fact the Moscow Kremlin is always referred to as “the” Kremlin, implying there is only one!

The NN Kremlin is very impressive, a high walled fortress enclosing a huge area, with walls you can walk through. We went for a very long walk through all of the walls, all of it downhill. Luckily there was a tasty ice cream stall by the river, so I could get an energy boost before the big climb back to the bikes.

It took longer than I wanted, delaying my departure, but it was well worth it.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
