The Kremlin is very beautiful. It's worth the visit. I only saw it from the outside but took very nice pictures. A whole visit should take the whole day.

There are very nice and colourful painting on the walls, unfortunately no photography allowed. Not a big place, so won't take too long to look around.

Considering how young, our country is ( USA), being emersed in Russian History ( Culture) via the Kremlin was worth while. The concentration on the "Christian" influence on the early history and the stark contrast to the "godless" society that resulted was numbing at times.

St Petersburg to the Kremlin by train A decade ago, cruise ship passengers docking in St Petersburg had to catch an internal flight if they wanted to visit Moscow for the day. Today, there is a modern high-speed train linking these cities in four hours or less and with a high level of comfort and service. This was what we... More
