Well Kremlin Palace covers lots of churches but after seeing one of the churches it feels like you have seen it all. I totally appreciate the architecture. Queueing up was a bit long and the ticket office is kinda far from the entrance so make sure you get your ticket before you make your way in.

There are an amazing number of churches, all with information sheets in different languages, and a great view over Moscow

Be aware of the cue in front of the entrance to the inside of the Kremlin, the cue for buying a ticket is not long but going thru the security can take a while. Inside the Kremlin is impressive with beautiful churches which you can visit and a great view over Moscow

Imagine standing on the Red Square, one of the most known places in the world, infamous during the Cold War, so much history.

We enjoyed our visit a lot. Even though we didn't have a tour guide, information sheets are available inside te Kremlim churches and all the information is there, also there are Kremlim officers inside that are very friendly.

It's much bigger and grander than I expected with so many churches inside. A must to visit. (Beware it is closed on Thursdays )

There are five churches inside the Kremlin and all are worth a visit just for the architecture - the insides are also worth a look - best of all was the Armoury - it is extra, but the treasures inside are worth it

I never expected to have such an amazing experience. This is a place that most tourists probably don't know is as easily accessible. It is one of the super powers of the world and a truly first class museum Allow a few hours, if you can get a private tour it's very worth it

. We were impressed. Our visit coincided with a military show which we enjoyed very much. We were surrounded by Russians from the different regions who were waiting for their bands to appear.

Neighborhood Profile
Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of state institutions and offices. To understand where modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as well.
