On a winter-like sunny day Kremlin looks even more beautiful than in the summer-time. And you actually can see more of Kremlin itself because trees lost their leaves by today.
So here is a view of west wall of the constuction. The roofless tower on the frontground is Kutafya, built in 1516; it's the only 'outside' tower survived in our days. The pike on the background is Trinity pass-tower (which means there is a gate); constructed in late 1490s, it was the main one at the west side. Kutafya and Trinity towers are connected by Trinity bridge; in 1516 it was thrown across Neglinnaya river (now inclosed in underground pipes).
