More then a wall.

Nice place and a must to visit when you are in Moscow. There are a large shoppingsenter in the building near Kremlin Walls.

Spare some 4 hours to visit. Have a guide! There's a lot to see and learn. If you don't intend to have a guide, you will not profit as much from the visit unless, of course , you 're a master in art and in Iconology.

I have to admit that before arranging to go to Moscow I did not fully understand what the Kremlin was. These walls enclose the fort that was/is the Kremlin. Within it the centre of Russian and previously Soviet authority has been and still is located. The walls and towers themselves are very impressive. You are sure to enjoy a close... More

If you can spare most of a day, go on a tour inside the Kremlin. A guided one would be best so that you don't miss anything and hear a little about the importance of them. You'll see more cathedrals per acre than you could imagine, you'll see old and new architecture. You'll see the Armoury where the most incredible... More

We walked along the road on the near side of the river so could obtain really good photos. Key buildings to photograph when in Moscow!

A must see for anyone visiting Moscow to get the full Kremlin experience - combine this with visiiting the inside of the Kremlin, the Armoury and The Diamund

Take a guided tour within the walls of Kremlin Moscow and you not only get a feeling of history, but you see and learn.

After reading about this area, I felt privileged to see it. I have a much better understanding. Seeing something in the "real"' , well, you can't top that!

It's worthwhile battling the crowds to look inside the walls. Going early may help but when we went the queues were huge. The churches are just gorgeous though.

Ignore the current despot in power, visit for the history...inside these walls are icons, artifacts and architecture that should not be missed if visiting Moscow. Plan at least 2-3 hours for strolling around, taking in the sights, etc...
