This is one of the oldest Kremlin's in Russia and within walking distance to the monastery, museum and bone carving display. An ideal place to visit especially if staying in Gostiny Dvor hotel which is part of Kremlin.

Kremlin is not very big, but picturesque. Expositions in the Governor's Palace Museum and in the Jail Castle are very informative. St. Sophia Assumption Cathedral has beautiful meb choir.

What a beautiful experience. We were fortunate enough to enter on a day that a mass baptism was taking place. The Kremlin was a live with babies, family, and candles. Very serene and spiritual visit.
