Armory Chamber. Kremlin Moscow

Postby archer » Mon Dec 29, 2014 7:14 am

I had the opportunity to visit Moscow for some work, pulled the time out to walk around the Kremlin for a couple of hours. A few pictures from the Armory Chamber at the Kremlin.

Incredible stuff, archer! What a treat to be able to see these treasures. I've seen some picture books addressing The Kremlin, but never have seen these arms. The fantastic wealth those Tsars must have had is incredible!

These are beautiful weapons and armor. Thanks for sharing; I envy you!

Many thanks archer for sharing this gem - quite an amazing collection! :D

Being an egg fanatic I loved the collection of 10 Faberge Eggs

http://www.moscow.info/museums/kremlin- ... useum.aspx

...The large case of Faberge eggs, presents exchanged between the tsar and tsaritsa every Easter, is probably the highlight of the collection, including the famous Siberian Railway Egg....

The collection of weapons, also divided by hall into Russian and foreign examples, is equally impressive, as befits the building. Mikhail Romanov's ornate, jewel-encrusted arms case and quiver, and the splendid dagger presented to him by the Shah of Persia, are particularly noteworthy.
