Whenever the term 'World Powers' is being mentioned, the first two nations that always come to mind are The United States of America and Russia. No doubt these two countries are the major forces controlling the world today when it comes to military prowess. As a result of the aforementioned, Russia and The United States have always been paired as competitive rivals over the years. I trust you have read several comparisons between the official cars and jets of the presidents of these two great nations but what do you know about the official residence of the president of the United States and that of Russian?
The United States' White House
The White House is the office and official residence of the president of the United States of America and the First Family. The complex which is located on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, D.C. is widely acknowledged as one of the safest buildings in the world.
The White House was designed by Irish-born architect James Hoban and construction took place between 1792 and 1800. Wikipedia has it that the modern-day White House complex consists of the Executive Residence, East Wing, West Wing, Blair House, and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
The Executive Residence (main residence of the president) consists of six stories; the ground floor, state floor, second floor, third floor, and a two-story basement. The residence is also believed to have a bunker where the president can always fall back to for safety. Check out more photos of the White House below.
The official residence of the president of Russia is the Kremlin; the country's presidential palace located around the neighborhood of the Red Square in Moscow. The Kremlin is a heavily fortified complex in the center of Moscow. It was founded by the Russian ruling dynasty of Rurikids and its construction dates back to 1495.
The Kremlin complex has five palaces, four cathedrals, and the Grand Kremlin palace amongst others. The fortified, enclosing wall around the Kremlin complex also has several Kremlin towers located at strategic points. The name 'Kremlin' means 'fortress inside a city' and notion which justifies the fact that there a many security features inside the complex that are kept as secrets.
Between these two presidential palaces, which one is more beautiful?
