Description of the Trinity Tower

 

This is one of the two entrances to Moscow Kremlin, another being Borovitskaya Tower. Constructed in 1495- 99 it is tallest of the Kremlin towers. Tower owes its name to Trinity Monastery of Saint Sergius that once had a mission near its gate. In 1516 it was linked by bridge to Kutafya Tower over Neglinnaya River that once ran through Alexandrovsky Garden. It is now buried underground leaving the bridge seem useless. It was used as an entrance for the patriarchs as well as tsars' wives, daughters and other female relatives.
