This two legged dragon is easily seen as you pass by on the way into the Kremlin. He sits atop the Metro entrance. There are other dragons at the Wedding Palace across the river.

Of all the dragons I have seen as symbols, this one is my favorite. Sits just in front of the Kremlin, on top of the entrance of the Kremlyovskaya station metro. Good place for pictures.
