You would not expect such an important place that has been a seat of such an important power like the Soviet Union to be so colorful and quaint. Very nice and spacious (who would have guessed, right ?).

I loved this place and when I visited it gave me an understanding of Russian History, The amount of lavish pieces on displays is facinating.

It is great to be able to go inside and see the politburo and the churches of the Kremlin, we had a Moscow greeter with us so our own guide to show us around, the place is spotless and the route you are allowed to take well posted, with soldiers to keep you on track if required. We had a.... More

Amazing city, different from any other place! Even if travelling with small kids & baby trolleys, is possible and high recommended to spend some time visiting the Kremlin walls too, beyond a simply look at the Red Square: the landscapes are great! Of course, with mild/warm temperatures! But prepare yourself to walk a lot and face the endless stairs to... More

The Kremlin (which is just a generic Russian word meaning "fortification") is the ONE thing to see if you have little time in Moscow. It is not what you thing--merely military and government buildings. It is actually the Old City of Moscow, replete with cathedrals, churches, icons, gardens and yes, a few government buildings and the biggest cannon in the... More

Kremlin is the center of Russia and touring the kremlin with a guide is a must for visitors. Go early in the morning to avoid large crowds.

Before I saw the Kremlin I had a very different picture in mind. It is actually a fortress complex containing several government buildings, 7 churches, a museum, and gardens. You can see famous icons like the Czar's Cannon and Bell. You can enter some of the churches, but not all. The armory collection has items owned by various Czars, such... More

Brilliantly maintained churches/cathedrals, fine museum with Faberge eggs and other great exhibits - quite a revelation. Several off-limit areas - well it IS Russia!
