Towers of Kremlin, Moscow Kremlin
The 20 Kremlin towers in terms of their configuration can be divided into round and square, according to the special fortifications rules. The corners of the triangle are fitted with the round towers - Corner Arsenalnaya, Vodovzvodnaya and Beklemishevskaya. The sites where the most important strategic roads led to the Kremlin were protected by powerful square towers with pass gates - Spasskaya, Nikolskaya, Troitskaya, Borovitskaya, Tayinitskaya, and Konstantino-Elenitskaya.
The towers stand out of the walls providing better control of the area and shooting range. The strong towers could play the role of independent fortresses in the case of enemies’ breakthrough inside the Kremlin. In total there were 22 towers in the Kremlin: 21 outer and one inner. Each of the towers of the Moscow Kremlin has a peculiar, unique appearance.
