Kremlin walls and towers are amazing. All the towers are different with clocks, stars, light, etc on top of them. It is amazing and around the walls you can see different urns or graves of important persons from Russia. We walked only through part of the walls, but if I had had a bicycle I would of seen it all.

The Kremlin is not a building--it is a compound of buildings. There are a few Cathedrals and the wonderful Armory--containing gifts to the czars.

It´s almost impossible to stroll around the walls and towers. It is huge. But, if you can, you should stroll a bit. It looks like the old spy movies. You can get the atmosphere. I worths the visit.

You can jump the queue for tickets if you buy your ticket on the Kremlin website before arriving. Then just follow instructions to pick up tickets at a special ticket counter. Everyone still passes through the same security process at the Trinity Gate entrance but at least you save some time in one line. Given the role the Kremlin plays... More

All what we have read and seen in the history books !! What an amazing place. Would recommend you book a private tour, as we did in Australia before we went. Saved hours in the queues. Personal guide is the way to go .

We traveled as a group and walked the kremlin walls both inside and outside. The outer walk was a great boon for the photophiles and provided numerous spots for great shots along with Basil's catherdral and the Moska river

When you first see it from a distance, it amazes and I think it is even more impressive then the pictures! Well worth a walk through and the park in front of it with beautiful fountains is worth a visit as well.
