I am a history buff, as you know. So I couldn't miss the Thunder Tower during my short visit to Smolensk. It is situated in the south-western part of the fortress. It is called thunder because it used to be a powderhouse. Now it is a military museum. The entrance is from the ground floor (literally) from the inner side of the fortress. The museum covers the military history of the middle ages mainly. From one of the upper levels one can enter a short stretch of the fortress wall.

This is one of the still standing towers of the Kremlin that is now a museum. Easy to visit, easy to enjoy.

Tiny beautiful museum

The only well-groomed tower of the castle. Very cheap tickets for chance to see a beatiful model of original Kremlin just after its construction and some archeological findings. Museum of WWII was closed on my visit, but I still could examine all tower from the bottom to the top and walk on a little part of nearby wall.

Kremlin

This is an amazing town with a Kremlin in the center of it. Kremlin means walled city and there is not just the one in Moscow.
