You have to visit while in Moscow

The architecture and cathedrals are amazing. Make sure to visit the Diamond Fund and Armory while here. A very special place to see.

If in Moscow you can't miss the Kreml. Tickets for the Churches and the Armoury will cost you 750 RUB (approx. EUR 12). The mighty Kreml rises a bit above the Red square symbolising strength and dominating the landscape. The Churches on top of the hill are beautiful, in my opinion they are a lot nicer inside than St Basil's.... More

This is a must for any visitor to Moscow. The whole is massively impressive and the individual buildings are worth visiting in their own right.

We didn't pay to go in the armoury - quite expensive and a shame the bell tower was closed as would have loved to climb it for views of red square. A bit underwhelmed by the lack of what there was to see - a number of lovely looking churches but that was it - had hoped for more. The... More

Loved it, has an atmosphere & aura that leaves you spellbound. To view the Kremlin and the effect on diverse visitor types, makes it a fascinating experience.

We enjoyed walking around to see the view from the Kremlin and were amazed with all the churches within the walls. All included in ticket price so worth going in. Every church also has a handout in various langauages. The art in the churches is amazing.

For sure one of the most amazing and interesting places I have visited. The Cathedrals and the Museums are incredible, especially "The Armoury", a must seen place!

Obviously this is the place to see. The churches inside double as museums with lots of different artifacts. Great history and lots to see. There are written guides in lots of languages in each museum describing the building's history as well as the major items of interest in the museum, so a guide really isn't needed. You can't take pictures... More

The Kremlin is synonyms with the history of Russia. If you are able to find a good a guide speaking in your langauage , he would make you recall the old chapters not much different to other monarchies . Even though Russia is considered having built every thing in grand scale way back since 5 decades , the Kremlin looks... More

Unexpectedly wonderful experience walking within the Kremlin walls visiting the churches and museum. Our private guide facilitated the access, and we were admitted with only a small wait. Beautiful weather made the experience memorable. Highly recommended to spend time here to see Russian history and wealth.
