Photographer's Note

You can recognize the Dormition of Mary Cathedral with its golden domes and it is possible to see the mural of Mary and the Baby Jesus above the main gate, something I posted few days ago.
This building at left it is Faceted Chamber, built in 1485 by Ivan, the Great, who contracted Italian architects.
Originally it had the throne and banquet hall and during the coronation of czars they moved from here to Dormition Cathedral by a special staircase, whose arch you can see here.
The relatives of Peter, the Great, were killed In these stairs during the Streltsy rebellion, in 1682, because the royal guard wouldn't want the new king bring modernization to Russia. Peter was a child and watched everything and because this he hated Moscow and when he became king he ordered the guard was killed, moved the capital to Saint Petersburg and modernized Russia.
These stairs were demolished by Stalin and rebuilt again in 1994.
You can see an image coronation of Alexander II in the link above.

Vocs podero reconhecer a Catedral da Dormio de Maria e suas cpulas douradas ao fundo, podem at mesmo ver novamente o mural com a imagem de Maria e do Menino Jesus acima do portal principal, algo que mostrei h alguns dias.
Esse prdio esquerda a Cmara Facetada, erguido em 1485 por ordens de Ivan, o Grande, que contratou arquitetos italianos para o fazer.
Originalmente o prdio tinha o trono e um salo de banquete e durante a coroao do czar ele saa dali e descia por essa escada com arco, que vocs podem ver esquerda, e seguia para a Catedral da Dormio.
Em 1682 houve uma revolta da guarda real (os Streltsy)e eles mataram boa parte dos parentes de Pedro, o Grande, nessa escadaria, pois no queriam que a Rssia se modernizasse. Pedro era menino e assistiu tudo isso e ficou com dio da cidade e quando se tornou rei e adulto, mandou matar os guardas, mudou a capital para So Petersburgo e modernizou a Rssia.
Essas escadas e o arco foram demolidas por Stalin na dcada de 1930 e reconstrudas em 1994.
Vocs podem ver uma imagem da cerimnia da coroao de Alexandre II nessas escadas entrando no link abaixo:
