History, Art Treasures of Kremlin Open to Public By K. C. THALER MOSCOW (UPI)--The once foreboding, darkly secret Kremlin is now Moscow's No. 1 tourist attraction. Muscovites and foreigners alike are entering it freely at all' times.; Large crowds of Russian and overseas tourists line up before its - historic monuments,?.'.from; which all but the. privileged few were barred during the life of Josei . Stalin. The Kremlin, described in official guidebooks as the . "heart of this gigantic, city,' is a vast complex within mighty 15th Century fortress walls! It houses not only the seat of the Soviet government but also some of -Russia's greatest historic and artist!' treasures. STALIN, AFTER moving Into the Kremlin in the !at '1920s, turned the iancien fortress into an impenetrabl · compound, guarded by gun and- an ingenious system of 1 electric warning device's. By closing the Kremlin Stalin deprived the public of the. view of such treasures as its ancient cathedrals with after taking power, reversed'.who carefully check the Stalin measure. He threw open the gates to the Kremlin 6 the disbelieving eyes of Muscovites. Now Moscow citizens are milling around in the precincts and spacious courtyard of the Kremlin, seeming- .y without a thought that only a little over a decade ago this was not only forbidden, but also most dangerous ground. · * » * BUT THIS newly-won freedom has by no means .done away with all the security arrangements of the past. The Kremlin's government offices still remain strictly off bounds. Here are the . premier's offices on whose domed roof-flies the state ensigns, hoisted on Lenin's instructions in 1918. · : The stray visitor who happens- to. wander 'off in the direction of the governmental compound/is quickly called to order by the watchful-' and ever present policeman's whistle. But no barbed wire and no machine guns are ostensibly used to block off the "corridors of power." Security m e a s u r e s are credentials of officials and other working staff. · * * * THE VISITOR who has received permission to enter has to present his credentials for verification. A second check takes place on entering the main.building of the Council of Ministers, the government's seat. An official meets .the visitor on entering the governmental building and then personally escorts him "as a matter of protocol" to the office in question. He again escorts him on leaving, right down to the Premier Alexei ,Kpsygin's conference room, which this correspondent saw on the oc casion of the recent Moscow visit of British Prime Ministei Harold Wilson, offers no visible surprises.
