Definitely check out the performances at the State Kremlin Palace. We sat in the Dress Circle and enjoyed The Kremlin State Ballet Theatre performing Sleeping Beauty ballet for about $17.50 per person. The whole place is HUGE, HUGE, HUGE! The stage coverS twice as much depth and width as other stages. Their Kremlin State Orchestra played the score beautifully, and... More

This was just so cool - great venue and the place that Nikita and the gang ran the country until they moved the Duma. Everything is large, except for the bathrooms unfortunately.

The architecture of the palace is quite contrasting to all of the Kremlin ensemble due to its straight lines and sharp corners. The building itself is not a great monument, although it bears its history. It makes a good photo spot if you manage to allign your picture so both the squares and cheerful round cupolas of the Kremlin church... More

As befitting a hall built for Communist Party gatherings, the Great Kremlin Palace is completely lacking in warmth and intimacy. Whether the program is a concert or dance performance, the performance is simply overwhelmed by the size of the stage and auditorium. The security check lines to get into the Kremlin for a concert are always long and slow. And... More

It wont take you all that long to visit but its well worth it. If you can avoid the busy weekend you will save queueing.

99% of historical Kremlin closed for tourists. They fear the Russian authorities? Almost all of the hidden fear from the time of Lenin and Stalin.

Cream cake in the middle of Kremlin. Surprisingly, some former sovetologists, such as Tom Clancy, mix it with the Great Kremlin Palace. In fact, the name of the portraited monster once was Great Cremlin Palace of Congresses, and there inside were very good New Year performances for children.

You can visit the Kremlin - even if you are not a Head of State ! Despite the fact that it needs a high level of security it is possible to visit this fantastic site and really should be on your itinerary when in Moscow. You can just turn up but it is better to book in advance and pay... More
