If your watch is on the wrong time zone, go to the tower closest to St Basil!

I can't believe that I didn't notice the clock when I took the photo! I must have been sleep walking. I actually asked a policeman what the time was! He pointed to the tower.... It is quite difficult to cross the road at the south west corner, but from there if you walk along the outside of the walls towards... More

Kremlin walls and towers essentially separates the inside and outside of kremlin. Think of it as a fort walls and outside. Taking a hop on hop off tour will take you around the kremlin and you can visit the total outside of Kremlin and the towers. Eventhough there is nothing unique is a a thing in bucket list for most...

Do you know that there are 12 orthodox churches within the Kremlin (means "fort") walls? In fact, five of them are next to each other surrounding the bell square. The Kremlin walls have 20 towers, among them 6 are towers with gates and five of them have a huge star on top. Within the walls you will find the offices... More

Worth a visit, great view across the city, beautiful churches and gardens. Don't bother with a guide, take your time. There are leaflets to tell you what you are looking at.

Very, very interesting place, so much history here! Lots to see and do around Red Square with the churches and museums and Gum's store(s)! Need good walking shoes as it's a huge place! You need at least 1/2 day, preferably a whole day, to see it all. Restrooms are hard to find and very limited...find a restaurant and use theirs...just... More
