The view of Moscow that everyone has seen on TV and in movies. The Kremlin walls and towers are in excellent condition and one of the must-see sights in Moscow. Easy enough to drive past. The walls and towers look great from a car or bus and especially from a boat on the river. However it's really worth getting out-and-about... More

Must see in Moscow. The Kremlin complex is huge and a display of Russian ancient culture and power. Recommendation: buy the ticket at the automatic tellers.

This must be the number one priority of any visit to Moscow. It is full of history both recent and ancient. Go with a guide or a guide book to get full benefit. There were big queues for opening times so go early or buy online. Buildings, cathedrals and grounds were very grand and well kept. Allow at least 3... More

it was outstanding, as every picture taken from it can show the beauty. Although whenever I see the pictures, it associates me picture of ice cream, especially when it snows!

You can just imagine what the Kremlin was like 20+ years ago as essentially a "fortress" for the government. There used to be a moat around this, but long ago, that was apparently filled and the area was covered with gardens. HINT: Take a stroll all the way around the outside of the Kremlin walls.

Visiting Kremlin is one of the few spots in Moscow that is actually crowded with tourists. That's why you should except a line at the ticket office (I reccommend buying tickets in advance online!). The ticket office takes breaks in between the day, so you won't be able to purchase the tickets at just any given time. The visit can... More

The red of the walls is beautiful and the towers, all different are amazing. You get a good view of the walls and various towers from Blodnaya Park and Red Square.

I get never tired to walk around the Kremlin when I go to Moscow for business. In the summer or in the winter it gives me a great feeling. The walls are impressive, the towers are high and the history of this place is amazing. There are always many people walking, sitting, in the green areas around the walls.

The Kremlin ( fortress as many in Russia) is a more than beautiful place with many very nice churches, palaces and musea. If you want to visit them all, you have to plan a whole day. The story behind the paintings, icons and treasures are more than interesting. A must for every art lover

This place was once a palace, not just a fortress, and it is filled with cathedrals, palaces and beautiful gardens. It is most certainly not the grim, brutal place that we have the impression of in the West. It is beautiful. However grim Soviet style building does intrude in the form of the twin helipads for Putin and Medevdev at... More
