    The Tula Kremlin is an outstanding monument of Russian defense architecture, which has preserved its original appearance. For almost a century and a half, it was an important fortress on the southern border of the Moscow state, the center of the Zasechnaya Line and reliably guarded the borders from nomad raids.

    The golden—domed Assumption Cathedral and the Epiphany Cathedral, erected as a monument to the Tula people who participated in the Patriotic War of 1812, became the real decoration of the Kremlin. And also the pearl of the Cathedral Square is an elegant four—tiered bell tower, in the style of the Moscow Baroque, topped with a high gilded spire, with a clock at the top.

    Tula has a gingerbread for friends. Tula has a sword for enemies.
