Busy, historic and rather serious: the armoury museum and Kremlin cathedrals, but you can't miss them. (Not much fun for kids, though). Best get your tickets at 9.30am as the Armoury tickets are limited each day.

I had not idea there are in fact at least 12 Kremlins ("Fortresses") in and around Moscow. THE Kremlin is adjacent to Red Square and I must admit (somewhat embarrassed) a much bigger concept than I had understood it to be: Soldiers, bureaucrats, priests, historians, tourists, shoppers and much more). You must see this and preferably with a guide to... More

And I'm only giving it 3 stars! In my opinion this is one of the "must see's" in the world, but it's so complicated and confusing for tourists--both foreign and domestic. There are no signs anywhere, and not all the ticket booths have English prices. I was watching Russian and non-Russian tourists in the line-ups and the confusion was mutual.... More

The Kremlin was fantastic, we visited the Kremlin cathedrals and the armoury (see separate review for the armoury) and found the cathedrals brilliant. In each cathedral they check your ticket, but then there is a free leaflet (in 6 different languages) providing you with more information about the cathedral you are in. This was great! The only thing that is... More

We visited the cathedrals within the Kremlin. It was exciting to actually enter the Kremlin, but the cathedrals were actually a bit disappointing inside. They look much grander on the outside with their elaborate gold roofs. However, the Kremlin is still worth a visit - a 'must' if you are in Moscow.

the territory is great and it reminds us about the historic past of our country. The cobbled pavements and the square with the 3 ancient churches in the centre are very attractive. The Bell Tower of Ivan the Great can be seen from far away. It is worth going inside the churches the tower. The Tzar Cannon and the Tzar... More

The Moscow Kremlin lies in the very hearth of Russia's capital. Better use the guided tour to learn more about Russain culture and history. Equally worth visiting in winter and in summer or any other season. Tsar cannon and trsar bell are very interesting artefacts. At 12 o'clock you can witness a very spectacular horse guard show.

Line up early and be prepared for a ticket system that is a bit confusing. Buy the one that allows you to see every church and the Armory (which is not just arms, but court costumes dating back centuries, some of the famed FAB eggs, and Royal China). Also buy the ticket for the jewel collection. I would do this... More
