In the very center of the Moscow Kremlin, in Cathedral Square, there stands the oldest surviving monument of the secular architecture of Moscow—the Faceted Chamber.
Au centre du Kremlin de Moscou, sur la place des Cathédrales, se trouve le Palais à Facettes, l'un des plus anciens monuments de l'architecture civile de Moscou.
Early Russia's foremost cultural and art centre, Novgorod was first mentioned in a scripture in 859. For the many centuries ever since Novgorod produced a large artistic school and preserved numberless monuments of the 11th-17th-century architecture, along with artistically outstanding works of early monumental painting. Novgorod remained unconquered throughout the hard times of Tartar invasion, so that its cultural monuments and artistic traditions survived until to-day. This explains the city's special significance in Russian art.
