    Pretty much every Russian city founded before 1500 has or had one. There are three that I know of within 100 miles of Moscow (Moscow, Zaraisk, and Kolomna; the latter survived only partially); the Serpukhov kremlin only has two fragments standing; there used to be kremlins in Vereya, Volokolamsk, Dmitrov, Zvenigorod, Pereyaslavl-Zalessky, and Ruza, but now only their bulwarks remain. Again, this is only within 100 miles of Moscow.

    The Kremlin page on Russian Wikipedia lists 20 known locations for stone-built kremlins, 10 for kremlins built of stone and wood, and 37 for wooden kremlins:

    If by Kremlin you mean the compound in Moscow; the walled citadel in Moscow in which cathedrals, palaces, and the offices of the Russian government are located: Then one.

    If you mean a generic Russian fortress: then MANY
