After breakfast this morning, everyone hopped on the bus and we all went into the heart of Moscow. We went and visited The Kremlin which is where Russian President Vladimir Putin does his work.

Words do not do justice to describe the beauty seen in the building. On our tour, part of the first place we saw was where Russian Tsars and other visitors would take residence while staying there.

We weren't allowed to take pictures, but I can tell you it was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen or likely will ever see in my life. Absolutely stunning crystal chandeliers, gold all over the walls.

All visitors were under instruction to stay on the carpet the entire time on the tour. Once we got to the second floor, everyone was allowed to take their cameras out and start taking pictures.

More beautiful architecture and paintings on the walls. No two rooms were any where near similar looking. Each one was very unique on it's own.

There was a grand hall which was just stunning. Along the walls, there were names of military personnel who received awards for their service. Plus, there was a hall way full of paintings of Russian Generals. Perhaps the most stunning display was another grand room which had a Royal throne which was something to be seen.

Even the hard wood floors in some parts were something to be seen on their own.

We were in the area not too far from the Red Square, but we didn't have time to get there today. We hope to get a chance to see it later on in the week.

Now the boys have a quick rest, before hitting the ice for an evening practice.
