Kitaygorodskaya wall

A unique historical monument restored in the second half of the 20th century. A fragment of the wall is located on the side of Kitaygorodskiy passage.
A rare beauty monument of serf architecture, which any European capital would rightfully be proud of if it had survived there to the present day ...
Igor Grabar, Russian and Soviet painter, academician, professor, art historian, restorer; 1925
 
During four centuries, a solid wall with towers surrounded one of the most ancient districts of Moscow – Kitay-gorod, a major trade, craft and cultural center in the 16th–18th centuries. The white stone foundation of the wall, a unique 16th-century fortification, is on display in the Underground Museum, which will allow you to learn many interesting facts about Moscow in the 16th–17th centuries and its inhabitants.
