- The Trinity Gate Tower is the spire-topped structure standing in the walls of the Kremlin which visitors must pass through in order to enter the grounds themselves. At 80 meters high it is the tallest of the Kremlin's towers. Construction was completed way back in 1495. As if to underline the often chilling history of the Kremlin, the area lurking underneath the tower was reserved in the sixteenth century for prisoners' cells.
