I can't quite believe that anyone would travel to Moscow and not visit the Kremlin. So much history to immerse yourself in, loved the Faberge Eggs and the beautiful carriages in the Armory (not full of Russian tanks and army equipment as some people expect). Also great to see the Tsar Bell in the grounds.

The Kremlin houses four cathedrals which are offered as part of the entry ticket. The cathedrals are lovely with a great deal of history associated with them. An issue faced is that the ticketing place is a little hard to find; an additional challenge is that English is not understood/spoken by most Russians and often one finds the directions indicated...

Never realised how big this palace/ fortress was. Lots of different buildings & grounds, including the very impressive Armoury. And the churches/ cathedrals are stunning in scale & architecture.

If it is open check it out. It will be crowded, but an important point of interest to see while visiting Moscow.

The walls of this structure are huge. Be aware that you don't get to see much in the Kremlin itself - only a few churches but these are interesting if you aren't "churched-out). The square was occupied by a military awards ceremony the time we went - not compelling, but interesting enough.

The Kremlin is a collection of varied structures, including many beautiful and functioning Orthodox churches, with only a few Soviet-era buildings The Armory museum is especially worthwhile, filled with treasures of the Czars as well as the expected armaments. I was fortunate enough to be there for a parade, complete with horses, soldiers and a brass band. It surpassed all... More

I never imagined that the Kremlin would be so beautiful and it was well worth the long train ride from St. Petersburg to visit. Cathedral Square, within the Kremlin walls held five spectacular cathedrals rich with history and beauty. To be walking on the grounds was an amazing experience in itself and to stroll through Red Square was an experience... More

It's a place that everybody just ought to see while staying in Moscow. Of course you should be aware of the fact that this is the sitting place of the Presedent and his administration/ This means that you are very rigidly restricted in your movements on the Kremlin territory. Every step aside of the marked path causes lots of whistling... More
