Kopytenskie Gates and Bubleika Tower

Bubleika Tower (June 2012)

The most western stretch of the kremlin walls includes the Bubleika Tower and the Kopytenskie Gates, both of which are square in structure with wooden roofs. The Bubleika Tower takes its name from the Russian word for tambourine (buben) as percussion instruments were installed here to be beaten upon the sighting of approaching enemies. Running along this stretch of wall is part of a moat.
