Was amazed by this tour of the Kremlin, the buildings are beautiful behind the Kremlin Walls, so many Cathedrals, Palaces and Gardens to view.Not what I expected at all.

Book on line saves queuing but remember to take passport to collect tickets.... More

Totally as symbolic of the Russian state as the White House and Capital Hill are of the USA - one sighting of the Kremlin Walls and you know you are at the centre of power in the Russian Federation.

Inside and outside - give yourself a whole morning/day to explore the area. Note the amount of policemen in every corner.
