The Kremlin holds deep political and cultural significance worldwide. Dive deep into its history and importance and join a renowned Russian historian for an in-depth Q&A.
The Moscow Kremlin is a vast fortress full of buildings, active offices, and museum galleries. The Kremlin has been home to Russia's most influential residents, from 13th-century princes to Tsars to today's headquarters for Vladimir Putin. There are plenty of characters for us to discuss. Join a historian to virtually explore this fascinating historic site nestled in the center of Moscow. 
In this conversation, we will learn the role the Kremlin played in Russian history, how its importance has grown, and what it means for present-day Russia. We will also virtually visit the Armory chamber, the premier museum of the Kremlin containing collections of royal carriages, dresses of Russian empresses, medieval thrones, and many other impressive exhibits. 
We will discuss the unique collection of gems and Royal jewelry kept in the Diamond Fund and the stories behind the intricate items. Finally, we will learn about all the buildings of the Kremlin: the Cathedral where Russian tsars were crowned, the Senate building (the office of the President), and the Grand Kremlin Palace, where all main official ceremonies take place.
Led by historian Vadim Malinovsky, this webinar will dive deeply into the history of the Moscow Kremlin. Participants will come away with an increased understanding of the Kremlin and why it is an essential custodian of Russian History.
