The power of the Tsar was absolute in old Russia and can be approached through the Moscow Kremlin only through a series of doors. And it was through these doors that one finally went in to have one’s audience with the Tsar, approaching slowly, moving to the place of honour, which always was in old Russia, nearest to the stove where warmth and heat would come in the otherwise cold, dark, forbidding and claustrophobic chambers.
