... their length. The gatehouse was set at an angle to the walls so any invaders could be exposed to fire from 3 directions. They have reconstructed part of the wooden covered walkway that stood atop the walls and for 40 roubles (just over a dollar) you can climb a tower and stroll the walls. Once up there, I could only imagine being on guard during winter here, wrapped in thick furs and snow all around. You'd be glad of the covered walkways then! The view of the countryside was ...
