Terem Palace was erected in the years 1635-1636 by four Russian architects for Tsar Michael I of Russia. The palace knew transformations a few decades later and again in the mid 16th century.
“Terem” in Russian means “the upper part of a house in ancient Russia” or simply “house”.
The palace strikes with originality. Built in bricks, it is meant to recall traditional Russian wooden architecture. The façade as well as the rooms inside are sumptuously decorated.
Terem Palace was restored in 1966-1969.
It is part of the Grand Kremlin Palace located in the Kremlin architectural complex.
