We went in on a busy Saturday in July as a group, and we were thankful we did. For some reason, group tours were allowed to go straight in without queueing. If you have to go as individual, be prepared for a long queue in the sun. Relieving yourself before going in would be a good idea, as I did... More

To get into Kremlin you need tickets, to buy tickets you need to stand in a queue. Here you need to wait a long time. The problem is when you have planned to get in to the Armory or ontop of the domes inside the kremlin for views you need to be there at certain times. 45 minutes before the... More

The Kremlin consists of several churches/cathedrals (see where coronations and royal weddings took place), buildings of government, museums and various historical items. A must to visit if you go to Moscow.

I had no idea what was inside the walls. Lovely churches called museums, a somewhat squatty palace, and actively used government buildings. Also, very lovely gardens. Do not miss.

I visited for the 3rd time Kremlin and as always, I was very much impressed to be there and inside ! Not much things changed since my first visit in 1994, the big canon and the the huge bell are still there, waiting for you to take a photo with them, which I of course did again this time. You...

Neat place well worth the visit. Was raining, but even so it was neat to visit the churches inside. We went with a tour guide so didn't get to see everything, but enjoyed what we saw.

A historical masterpiece. Churches, palaces, bell tower, cannon, bell, gardens and so much more. Small fee to enter, but worth it

Visit Moscow Free Tours (though this one is not free) and really hear the details. Makes it much more interesting. After the tour, stick around and roam the grounds on your own.
