Left Red Square in search of the Kremlin Tour, walked along the river, and it was cold in late October with sleet in the air. The walls are impressive, but it's a little bleak.

This is a great historical location, and of course right next to Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral.

It seems to go on for ever.. It is very impressive. We took hundreds of pictures. Today we are going to attack the inside of the Kremlin. Should be awesome.

If one has a sense of history then the Kremlin wall is imposing and historical when one imagines what all has taken place within the walls.

The first place one needs to see in Moscow is Kremlin. As for now the tickets can be purchased via Internet but in advance. The history of these walls is full of mysteries so they are worth to be seen and read about!
