Walk around the Red brick Kremlin walls. At 4 pm see the changing of the guards at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Wonderful sights.

Your visit to Moscow will not be completed if you did not see this one. It is all day trip that you can see most of the Russian history

Visited one the main attractions of the city. The exterior structure is quite beautiful and inspiring. The cathedrals inside are just about OK. I believe that cathedrals in other places are more impressive.

So much history and heritage behind these walls. It's really hard to describe with words but must be seen., Totally stunning!

love the kremlin, very impressive from every side (river especially, early in a morning) towers are so mysterious and you can feel very small next to it.

If it's your first time in Moscow, I highly recommend to visit Kremlin walls and tower. If you can find someone who knows the history, you wouldn't regret the visit.

We happened to be there @ around 12 pm and we were lucky to see the Soldier's Parade. It was a good spectacle. So if you can plan your trip and entry at such a time that you can see this, it would be worth it. Try booking the tickets online to avoid the long queues.

for your whole life you see vision of events at Red Square and The Kremlin and never expect to be lucky enough to travel there and see it all up close and in real life. We were in Russia late November and had organised guides through Beyond Travel to show us the sites each morning and let us loose for... More

You can re-live all those movies walking around the Kremlin and feel the tension yet also sense the change in the atmosphere. It is a wonderful place to be and a must-see stop in Moscow.
