Before I saw the Kremlin I had a very different picture in mind. It is actually a fortress complex containing several government buildings, 7 churches, a museum, and gardens. You can see famous icons like the Czar's Cannon and Bell. You can enter some of the churches, but not all. The armory collection has items owned by various Czars, such... More

Brilliantly maintained churches/cathedrals, fine museum with Faberge eggs and other great exhibits - quite a revelation. Several off-limit areas - well it IS Russia!

It was only one day in Moscow with my distant relative, who I havent seen for 30 years or so, she offered to take a trip to Moscow on a train from Nizhniy Novgorod and I certainly could not resist, as I havent been there yet at that moment. In 4 hours early morning fast speed train has brought us... More

The Kremlin in Moscow is an iconic location and is well worth a visit. Inside the walls you will find an estate of historic and significant buildings and some great photo opportunities - outside the buildings only - no photos allowed inside the buildings. The Kremlin is very popular with Russian and foreign tourists and can get very busy. One... More

We did this tour with UK Riviera Travel so had a guide and whilst we were sceptical what would be included it was a surprise the amount to see when you get inside, Churches, views over the city, museums.

If you come Moscow and do not visit Kremlin, you have missed all the city and if you visit it and the Vassily Cathedral, then, you can visit the city with no more hurry, because you have got most of the things you should have got from Moscow.

Another "have to do this" while in Moscow. The Kremlin and it's museums lie adjacent to Red Square and the Gum department store complex. HINT: This is a wonderful place to see at night; it is lit up like Disneyland and the people watching is as great as the historical marker churches and clock tower.

Visiting the Kremlin is absolutely necessary when you go to Moscow. Make a stroll around this majestic place, enter the churches and feel the greatness of Russia. Then, tired of all this show-off architecture and crazy distances, walk to Kamergersky to take a refreshing drink in a more "human size" atmosphere.
