    Is there any famous? i'd ask if there are few to show them to us



    A kremlin (Russian: кремль, [ˈkrʲemlʲ],) is a major fortified central complex found in historic Russian cities. This word is often used to refer to the most famous one, the Moscow Kremlin, or metonymically to the government that is based there. Another terms used to signify this part of city are детинец and крепость (altough крепость is any fortress).

    Here are some of famous Kremlins in Russia:

    Well, Russian fortresses have lot of influences, Ancient Slavic architecture, Byzantine, Italian Rennaisasance (Mosocow Kremlin was built with help of Italian architects), it is quite colorfoul mix :)

    If you are looking for clasical castles, I think there is not to much of them in Russia, on other hand, there is lot of castles in Belorussia.



    That castle near Murom, more pics:




    I wanted to do a such thred, but when I was searching the info, there were very few castles and the ocean of the palaces. So I can't choose the palaces that should be post because they all were woth.



    Post them all in successive messages (Kremlins, large and fortresses, fortified palaces). There is lot of such things.

    Well, besides Kremlins we have Ostrogs ("Острог" in Russian).

    Ostrog (Russian: остро́г) was a Russian term for a small fort, typically wooden and often non-permanently manned. Ostrogs were encircled by 4-6 metres high palisade walls made from sharpened trunks. The name derives from the Russian word строгать (strogat), "to shave the wood". Ostrogs were smaller and exclusively military forts, compared to larger kremlins that were the cores of Russian cities. Ostrogs were often built in remote areas or within the fortification lines, such as the Great Abatis Line.

    From the 17th century, after the start of the Russian conquest of Siberia, the word ostrog was used to designate the forts founded in Siberia by Russian explorers. Many of these forts later transformed into large Siberian cities.

    When later Siberia became a favourite destination for criminals sent there to serve katorga, Siberian ostrogs became associated with imprisonment, and in the 18th and 19th centuries the word ostrog often meant prison.

    Survived wooden ostrogs and stone forts in Siberia from Wiki:

    The tower of Ilimsky ostrog, now in Taltsy Museum in Irkutsk, Siberia.

    The tower of Yakutsky ostrog.

    Kuznetsk fortress

    Spasskaya tower of Tomskiy ostrog

    Reconstructed wall of ostrog in Tara city
