The menu features the Grand Kremlin Palace and the domes of the Assumption Cathedral behind the Kremlin walls. On the left side are the heraldic shields of Emperor Alexander III and Empress Maria Fedorovna as well as the emblems of Moscow, St. Petersburg, and other Russian cities. Below the shields is a poem by Mikhail Lermontov:

Over the great, golden-domed city of Moscow,
Over the white stone walls of the Kremlin,
From the distant forests and blue mountains,
The gray clouds break up
And the scarlet sun rises.
