Well it IS really good. The buildings are stunning, however, if you have no particular interest in historical/religious relics, I say there's no need to enter the cathedrals. The best experiences lay in watching them from the outside.

There are only two entrances for the Kreml in Moscow. Both are located on the other side than the red square. It costs an entry fee but it's moderate and worth it. If you don't have a guide bring a travel guide book with you. When you buy the ticket you get a map with the names of the buildings... More

Is quite big, and if going to the armoury you could spend a whole day here. Has beautiful cathedrals and garden. Has no café or refreshments though so take your own.

It was within walking distance to the hotel. The tomb of the unknown soldier and the changing of the guard was interesting. The towers of the kremlin made for some great photo moments.

Brilliant to see, the Kremlin was the top of my to do list in Russia and it never let me down, it's a stunning place to visit.

The Kremlin was extremely interesting - full of history and beautiful architecture. A lovely sight that I would recommend seeing if you visit the city.

The most interesting part is cathedral square. Three churches - one the Tsars were baptized in, another crowned in and the third buried in. See Peter the Great's huge canon that never fired a shot. Putin's office. Putin's residence where he never spent a night. Beautiful gardens and vistas of Moscow.

Visited the Kremlin May 26th, beautiful cathedrals and palace, well kept gardens as you would expect, well sign posted from Metro. Information on the entrances of all areas in 6 different languages, probably take you around 2 hours or so see everything, very strict inside no photographs inside the buildings, and you need to keep on the pavements and off...
