Kremlin in Izmailovo (Измайловский Кремль)

The cultural and art complex Kremlin in Izmailovo was opened in 2003 for introducing the Russian traditions, architecture, and folk arts. The place is suited for good photographs; the buildings remind of a fairy castle with whimsical wooden decoration and colorful domes. It is one of the best locations in Moscow to get know with traditional handicrafts, and find souvenirs.
