Residence of the President of Russia


Not far from the Spasskaya Gate is the residence of the President of Russia, the former building of the Presidium of the Supreme Council. This is the first building in the Kremlin built in the Soviet era in 1932-1934. Originally, this building housed the Military School named after the Central Executive Committee. In 1938 the secretariat of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR moved there. In 1958 the interior of the building was rebuilt to house the Kremlin Theater with the 1,200-seat hall. In 1969-1970 the building was fundamentally renovated.
