Second Unnamed Tower

The Second Unnamed Tower served purely military purposes too. It was built in the middle of the 15th century. In 1680 the Second Unnamed Tower was built up with the upper part and a high pyramidal hipped roof with an observation tower. The octagonal marquee with a weathervane crowns it. In ancient times, this tower had a gate, which later was bricked up. In 1771, in connection with the construction of the Kremlin Palace the Second Unnamed Tower was demolished; and after the construction had ended it was rebuilt.
