The Tsar's (Tsarskaya) Tower

The Tsar's (Tsarskaya) Tower in Moscow Kremlin The smallest and youngest of all the Kremlin's towers, the Tsarskaya Tower, named in honour of Tsar Ivan Grozny (the Terrible), was built in 1680 atop the wall between the Spasskaya and Nabatnaya towers. It replaced a small wooden turret which had previously stood there and from which, according to legend, the young Tsar hurled dogs to their death, and loved to observe executions and festivals taking place below on Red Square. The Tsarskaya Tower, with its eight-sided tent roof topped with a gilded weathervane, chimneys girdled by white-stone bands, and high corner pyramids with gilded flaglets, is reminiscent of a turret from a Russian fairy-tale, and is one of the Kremlin's most attractive buildings.
