In 2016, more than 500 m of the historic Kremlin wall will be restored

This information has been published on the Moscow Mayor and Governmental website. “The section of the wall between the Corner Arsenal, the Middle Arsenal and the Spasskaya Towers of the Kremlin has already been put in order. The next stage of the work will be on the walls facing Red Square from the Corner Arsenal to the Spasskaya Towers. Specialists will restore brickwork and decorative elements and will waterproof the walls. Investigations of the walls’ foundations have been started, and geophysical reconnaissance has been carried out”, said the Director Counselor of the Federal Protective Service, Sergei Deviatov.

To remind you, the total length of the Moscow Kremlin walls is 2,235 m.

So far in 2015, the restoration of the Spasskaya, Troitskaya, Corner Arsenal and Middle Arsenal Towers of the Kremlin, as well as the wall section along Neglinka up to the Troitsky Gates, has been completed.

Borovitskaya and other towers are to be restored. The modern Kremlin wall was erected during the reign of the Great Knyaz Ivan III in 1485–1495 to replace the white stone wall built in the time of the legendary Dmitry Donskoy.

The height of the wall is from 6.5 m to 19 m, and its thickness from 3.5 to 6.5 m.
