Definitely worth a visit. Cathedral Square inside the Kremlin is stunning as are the cathedrals inside. The government buildings are also very interesting. would recommend paying a bit extra to get a tour guide to take you round though unless you are already knowledgeable about the kremlin. Without the tour guide I would not have known what I was looking... More

The Kremlin is a must see! From the inside and the outside. Not for the faint hearted but Lenin's Tomb is an experience but beware of the very dark steps descending down into the tomb. A guided tour is a must to get the full history of this remarkable place. Toilet facilities are poor, use the toilets outside the Kremlin... More

The kremlin was interesting - most of the government buildings looked alike, very bland. However you are there to see the churches inside and the armory. The tszar bell and cannon was interesting.

You have to see the Kremlin in Moscow to have a picture of the command center of one of the great powers.

If you are in Moscow you must visit the Kremlin. There is so many things to see from different cathedrals to flower gardens to a broken bell structure (get the history on it first). A must see. I recommend having a Russian with you to understand the payment process at the gate and to provide history of the Kremlin.

Moscow Kremlin is one of the must-see places of the city, but does not give a wow-effect to a visitor. Good thing is that you don't need to spend much of your time to see the area.

Closed without warning despite having been told by the ticket office the day before to there was no need book and to just turn up. Feel completely cheated as that was our last day so, having read up on the history etc, we never got to see it.

Seeing the jewellery the Tsar's horse wore it is not surprising they had the 1917 revolution. Diamond collection (extra) was quite spectacular and overall a good half day excursion

I visited the Armoury Chamber which is part of the Great Kremlin Palace complex in Moscow. This is a must see collection. Most of the treasures on display were gifts to the Tsars and Emperors, including the famous Cap of Monomakh, once the official crown of all Russian Tsars. Another treasure is the carved ivory throne of Ivan the Terrible.... More
