The Kremlin is hard to miss so you may as well go inside and check it out. We bought general exhibition tickets and were absolutely blown away by the cathedrals inside. True historical works of art.

There's a lot to see and every bit of it is worth seeing, from the cathedral to the tsar cannon and bell, to the armoury and the grounds. There's a small fee to get in and a wait if you don't get there early but don't let that stop you. The Kremlin is living history and shouldn't be missed!

We went here as part of a tour with a moscovite Alexei who spoke great English. From the outside of the Kremlin walls you have no idea of the number of buildings inside. We went round three of the cathedrals and our guide explained why they were there, the theme of the decoration and a brief history of Russia. We... More

If you are in Moscow you must visit Red Square and the Kremln. Go early (10.00am) and buy tickets (very cheap) to get started before the crowds arrive. Buy tickets to see everything and don't miss the amazing Faberege eggs!

I had a layover and went into the center to cross this off my list. It was evening and I didn't get to go inside but I was able to walk around Red Square and take everything in. The magnitude of it is very impressive and well worth going just to say that you went!

An interesting and educational experience, made more so by having a very knowledgeable guide who pointed out the post Soviet changes, the removal of the CCCP and Hammer and Sickle, which was replace by the double headed eagle, The Soviet turret roof domes which have been positioned around the city and replaced by less intimidating structures. Interesting to walk in... More

Spent over 3hrs at the Kremlin, wandering around looking in all the buildings. Loads of churches and museums to go into. Although it was winter I would think the garden are lovely in spring or summer. Good place, cheap to get in. No cafe on sight and toilets were not very clean.
