The Commandant's (Komendantskaya) Tower

The Commandant's (Komendantskaya) Tower in Moscow Kremlin This tower, facing the Alexandrovsky Gardens, stands a little over 42 meters tall. Originally, in 1495, the tower was built as an austere, gateless tower. However, almost two hundred years later, it acquired its present and evidently better-proportioned appearance after reconstruction from 1676 to 1686. Previously it bore the name 'Kolymazhskaya', after the Kolymazhny coach yard inside the Kremlin. However, the tower has been known as the Commandant's Tower ever since the 19th century, when the Moscow Commandant took up residence in the Kremlin's Poteshny Palace, near the tower.
