THE ROMANOVS PALACES ~ Izmailovo is a family residence of the Romanovs. Tsar Alexei (the 2nd monarch from the Romanovs dynasty) enjoyed gardening. During his reign Izmailovo was decorated by four famous gardens, as Grape, Prosyana, Amusing and the Island. Alexey and his son, Tsar Fedor (Peter I's brother) built a lot here. In the 1670s their care brought to Izmailovo a huge five-domed St. Basil's Cathedral, richly decorated with tiles. Interesting, there are two Kremlins in Moscow
