I always wanted to come to Russia and see Kremlin. We have booked a tour, that's why all went so smooth, no long lines for tickets, entries to churches without queue and great stories about each building. It was quite cold, but was very interesting to see the places where Russian Tzars lived. You can't enter to all of the... More

Really amazing to go inside the walls of the kremlin and visit the magnificent armoury. Really worth the visit but I highly recommend getting a guided tour around the area as it is a big complex with history lurking within each wall and statue

You can feel that you are in the center of a powerful nation. You can see that In the old times the Churches were part of the political power.

That was my husband's first visit to Moscow and we had only 3-4 days on December 27-30, we did not want to stay in the lines, so we ordered two days private tours and could not do better than that! All our tickets and schedules were ready and we did not waste any time. We spent a couple of hours... More

The ticket office is situated adjacent to the "Forgotten Solider", just outside the Kremlin walls. The very helpful lady at the ticket counter, in her best Russian, managed to explain that a Kremlin tour (access to a number of attractions) was better value than just a ticket to the Armoury. The Armoury is, as the name suggests, the old Armoury... More

Having tried to visit on two previous occasions, due to long waiting times I finally made it with a tour guide on the third visit. My expectations were high and in fact many people had built up the "diamond room" as the highlight, but in fact I spent nearly half my time in the museum, all I can say it... More

A treasured memory of inside the Kremlin, was watching a traffic policeman who had a very very small area to guard, it was a street between where most of the cathedrals were and buildings on the other side, but almost no cars. Woe be it to the unsuspecting person who stepped off the sidewalk to take a photo. He would... More

A visit to Moscow is incomplete if you don't visit the Kremlin. Purchase a nominal entrance ticket and visit the numerous churches, museums, gardens and architecturally built buildings. The kremlin has the largest canon which actually has never been used according to locals/guides. The kremlin also the largest bell(called as Tsar bell) with a part of it broken and kept... More

It was really surreal to walk in a place that I had learned so much about in the 80's in HS. I felt like an American Spy walking in...haha Many things to see...Armoury Chamber (the gowns and carriages of the past..amazing), and many Cathedrals! Make sure you make time to see it all.
