We spent a good amount of time around the Kremlin, probably ended up here almost every day or passing by at some point. We have been to Moscow a couple times and always take a walk around the Kremlin. I recommend both night and day for a walk as both seemed very safe. It is a magnificent, iconic structure in... More

it was the achievement of a lifetime dream to finally visit the Kremlin. So much different than I imagined. The history of such a site is incredible.

Who would visit Moscow and not go to the Kremlin? Especially the cathedrals, are gorgeous! So much art concentrated in these wonderful monuments. Do not miss the Armory, with all the jewels of the Czars, the gilded carriages, the crowns, the magnificent collection of table services given by ambassadors, so much wealth! Plan on dedicating at least 2 days for... More

You will need to pay 350 rubles before entering. Before you enter, you will need to pass through security checks. Once you entered, the place is awesome. However, i think during winter time, the russians will close parts of the place within the kremlin to refurbish. Not all places within the kremlin is allowed to access. Some places were blocked...

No need to tell much about this beautiful masterpiece of fortress. Everyone knows how it looks, but to be there is something else. It looks different from every direction and you can't get tired admiring it.

I remember few major infrastructure that surprised me in this way! Walls, towers and buildings have special colors and decorations, then if you are lucky to find blue sky and a sunny day you will be surprised for sure!
