The Golden Gate was one of the main structures built by Yaroslav in 1037. Cut into the huge rampart, it measured about 6.4 meters, which was wide enough for a triumphal entry. The "golden" part of its name referred to the golden cupola of the Church of the Annunciation which was built over it. Its dark and forbidding but amazing to think that is 1000 years old.
