If you are lucky enough to have a good weather is a perfect spot to take a photo from the bridge. My favourite time for taking the photo is t time for blue light.

My husband dreamed to take a photo of Kremlin Walls and Towers at sunrise. Last days of December 2014 were cold and cloudy. On fourth day of our visit, he walked all the way to the bridge behind the St. Basil's early morning and the Sun came out! That is how my husband got his great photo. We also got... More

Walk down Kremlin to get best feel of the grandiose peace of historical architecture - that gives window to the glorious past and ambitious present of Russia. Best time to visit is late afternoon but in day light to actually appreciate the colours , buildings and the location - Whether you like history or not - one should visit it... More

The walls and towers of the Kremlin look amazing. There are a number of towers, some bigger than the others. Five of the towers have a huge red star on them which can turn in the wind and these also light up at night. I recommend walking along the river beside the walls as there is a great view from...

Amazing doesn't cover it, quick tip avoid the queue for tickets and go into the ticket office, where there are automatic machines to buy tickets, then once inside, head to the diamond tour to then purchase tickets for the armoury saves you loads of time.

The wall is amazing. Famous people are buried here. Lenin's Tomb is on the outside. The towers are magnificent. Walk all around to get the best feel. Inside the wall also is interesting but has a completely different feel. Free--enjoy!

Kremlin has a lot to offer. You can buy tickets to certain trips inside the Kremlin wall. Armour is the best but Cathedral trip too does not bore you. You can presidential building from outside. Hard to catch Putin though. You find Police everywhere. so you cant do nasty things as shown in MI4 :)

Just give a walk around the walls, see all the towers and the differences between them, It'll take a while, but certainly will worth it the effort.

The walls and towers are not what I expected. There was much more to see and do here, including Lenin's Tomb and the gravesides of several other historical figures such as Stalin.
