It was my 11th or 12th trip to Moscow and I still always like to watch Kremlin walls and Towers, as seen from the Red Square or from its area. It's just impressive colors, buildings, shapes that we are not used to see. I have a feeling of greatness and of pleasure everytime I'm watching them. I will soon add... More

Kremlin is big and so are the walls surrounding it, many bricks have been put here so that the walls could rise as they stand today, many watch towers around, but noe mainly cameras are here to monitor. There are also some cathedrals in the middle of Kremlin near the armoury and the buildings were the politicians are. When you... More

Being inside the "nerve center" of present day and the historical past of Russia is a "don't miss". The experience of being among the many beautiful churches, palaces, Armory, huge bell, cannons and gardens excel anything you have seen in of the Kremlin in movies.

Amazing to see these high walls and the sheer beauty of the masonry craftsmanship applied. Neat as a pin and exact engineering.

A small fee to get into, but worth it. 5 churches, 4 palaces, the Senate, the Armory, burial tombs of the Czars,Crown Jewels, a huge bell and cannon and beautiful gardens. This place is massive. We spent 4 hours here and still didn't see everything

Kremlin walls and towers are amazing. All the towers are different with clocks, stars, light, etc on top of them. It is amazing and around the walls you can see different urns or graves of important persons from Russia. We walked only through part of the walls, but if I had had a bicycle I would of seen it all.

The Kremlin is not a building--it is a compound of buildings. There are a few Cathedrals and the wonderful Armory--containing gifts to the czars.

It´s almost impossible to stroll around the walls and towers. It is huge. But, if you can, you should stroll a bit. It looks like the old spy movies. You can get the atmosphere. I worths the visit.

You can jump the queue for tickets if you buy your ticket on the Kremlin website before arriving. Then just follow instructions to pick up tickets at a special ticket counter. Everyone still passes through the same security process at the Trinity Gate entrance but at least you save some time in one line. Given the role the Kremlin plays... More
