Moscow Sights

State Kremlin Palace (Gosudarstvenny Kremlyovsky Dvorets)

  • Castle/Palace/Chateau

Fodor's Review

In 1961 this rectangular structure of glass and aluminum was built as the Dvorets Syezdov (Palace of Congresses) to accommodate meetings of Communist Party delegates from across the Soviet Union. Today it's affiliated with the Bolshoi Theatre and is used for concerts, fashion shows, and ballets. Big names such as Tom Jones, Elton John, and Rod Stewart have played here. A sizable portion of the palace is underground: the architect designed the structure this way so that

it wouldn't be higher than any of the other Kremlin buildings. Apart from attending a concert, the building is of no real interest.
