Спасская башня

Спасская башня (Spasskaya Tower), The Kremlin, Moscow

In just 5 days I'll be back in Moscow, looking at this clock tower with my very own eyes again!

The Spasskaya Tower overlooks Red Square. The red star on top was put there in 1935, as a traditional Soviet symbol. The tower itself was built in 1491. If you watch the New Years programs on Russian TV, this is the clock they show counting to midnight.
