Russia 1981 (5)
And here's the reason we were in Klin...
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's House and Museum
We spent an interesting couple of hours here
This was Tchaikovsky's home for the last year of his life, it's now a museum to him.
One of the store houses at Klin
Tanktrap WWII Monument
These ovesize tanktraps mark the closest that German troops got to Moscow during WWII.
They are at Khimki, which is 25km (15 miles) northwest of Moscow on the M10.
Back to the Hotel Cosmos for lunch which was smoked fish, soup, beef and onion stew and icecream. After lunch back to the Kremlin. Yesterday we'd onlt seen the outside of the place and wandered around Red Square, today we'd be going inside the complex. The Kremlin is very impressive. Many of the churches are now museums of one sort or another.
