I didn't go inside Kremlin, but walked around it and took some snaps. It was amazing to see the old structure which has gone through various phases of changes in Russia. It was really amazing to view it in night

While a visit to the Kremlin is mandatory the inside of the Kremlin is nothing more than an entrance to a handful of churches and cathedrals. None of which were particularly impressive looking. Buy the cheapest ticket you can and walk around.

I think this is an interesting site to visit because of the history contained inside the walls. There are several churches/cathedrals you can see inside at no cost. You can also see the world's largest cannon (which has never been fired) and what is purported to be the largest bell in the world.......which has a mysterious piece chipped out of... More

This review is rather about Moscow as a capital of Russia. One could rave endlessly about the beauty of this city which Russians named the "The best city in the world", and certainly for the reason. It is hard to imagine what Moscow has to offfer until you really step in. There is no other city in the world, including... More

It is mandatory to visit Kremlin, but I do not think you should go for the "all in" ticket. We bought the cheapest and got to see the surroundings, cathedrals and also go inside two of them. I was happy with this for 300 rubles instead of 700 per person.

The inside of the Kremlin is just entry to a few churches and cathedrals, and a canon. You see nothing about the Russian political machinery or learn about it. A complete let down if you were going for this reason!

The Kremlin is also a conglomeration of palaces, churches, monasteries, chapels, barracks, arsenals and bastions....

Lenin's tomb is free to enter - the rest you need to pay for. My suggestion is to pay for an Armoury ticket and just wander round the Kremlin while you wait for your time slot - the cathedrals were not quite worth the entrance fee.
