BackgroundEdit

Note, that the in-game Kremlin doesn't look like the actual Kremlin, but instead is a model of the St. Basil's Cathedral. This is probably because aesthetics-wise, St Basil's Cathedral tends to be the most recognizable landmark in the vicinity of the Kremlin of Moscow.

In Russian, "kremlin" means "citadel"; there are Kremlins in many Russian cities but the term almost invariably refers to the Kremlin in Moscow, which since the Russian capital moved to that city in 1918 has been the secretive center of government of the Soviet Union and, since 1991, of the Russian Federation. The term is also used to refer to the Russian government, much as Downing Street is shorthand for the British government, the Elysee Palace for the French government, and the White House for the American government.

TriviaEdit

  • The same mistake of making Kremlin look like Saint Basil's Cathedral was made in Firaxis' Civilization IV and, though to a lesser degree, in Civilization V as well, both released subsequently. [1]
  • The Kremlin is one of the four wonders that produces units and can create a Rally Point. The others are the Terra Cotta Army, the Forbidden City, and the Red Fort.
    • Despite this, it is one of the two wonders among the aforementioned four that units cannot garrison within, the other one being the Terra Cotta Army.
