The Alexandrov Kremlin was built in the 16th century by the order of Vasily III (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_III ), the father of Ivan the Terrible (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_IV_of_Russia ). The architectural complex of the Sovereign's Court Alexandrovskaya Sloboda is a unique medieval palace complex. Created by Italian and Moscow craftsmen, it was second only to the Kremlin in Moscow in size, beauty and richness.

The complex consists of several churches of the Kremlin. One of them is the great Trinity Cathedral (1513), the temple of the royal residence, the most grandiose and majestic building of the Kremlin. There, Ivan IV the Terrible was crowned together with his third wife, Martha Sobakina (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marfa_Sobakin ) and the fifth wife, Anna Vasilchikova (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Vasilchikov ).

Also very interesting is the Crucifixion Church - belfry (1570s). It looks like an octahedron and reminds a watchtower.
