Bought tickets online and lined up at Window 12 to exchange the e-voucher with actual tickets. The Kremlin is packed with must-see attractions that are conveniently located near each other. Excluding the Armory Chamber (separate ticket needed), you can easily spend half a day and enter the different cathedrals within the Kremlin walls. Totally worth the time! If there's one... More

Come here for the history ! Clean, interesting and next to Red Square. There is so much to see in the area and the mix of government, and old epic architecture that is breathtaking will be a memory to last a lifetime. The area is safe, during today's economy is very affordable. Highly recommended.

Of course this is the monument to visit in Moscow if you just had one day left. Allow at least a couple of hours inside. The 'Cathedrals Square' is a dream of withe walls and golden domes. The icons inside these churches are outstanding.

I have visited this wondrous place many times. Here is the heart of Russia. The buildings are numerous and mostly awe inspiring. The giant bell, which is enormous enough to have an eleven tonne fragment, broken off in the casting pit ,which caught fire and the firemen plied their hoses to such effect that this"fragment" cracked off. It is just... More

We had not realized the size and complexity of the Kremlin before we visited. So the time we had did not allow us to see it all, especially the Armoury which we were sorry to miss. However we did manage many Cathedrals and Churches as well as a visit to the top of the Ivan The Great Bell Tower. The... More

One has to spend time at the Kremlin while in Moscow. The synonym of the Russian power, the areas open to the public are imposing and full of history.

Adjoining the Red Square, this enhances the total aura of the whole area. The imposing towers and walls are indeed magnificent. the museuem is very good and one of the several "must do" things in the city.

We scrapped into the Kremlin at 15:57 as they were stopped selling the entrance tickets at 16:00. We had an enchanting two hours inside the Kremlin. We spent the first hour in the Armoury. It is a must to have the audio tapes in order to understand what you are seeing. Tapes were available in all the major languages. Although... More

In Moscow the Kremlin is a place you must visit, it really worth it. You can see many historic sites. The most remarkable sites are the armoury, the building where Putin office is, the Dormition cathedral and a beautiful garden with great view on the most famous river of Moscow. There are many more to see but these are those... More

Everyone who goes to Moscow visits the Kremlin and rightly so! An amazing city within a city with cathedrals, museums, Putin's Office and Chopper Pad, and much more. The Armory Museum is the highlight even if the Faberge Eggs don't sparkle as expected.
