They are red, before the October revolution, and this color gives them a unique character. The combination of color and height, pass the message very clearly. "Inside is something important and valuable". They didn't save the Tsar, but certainly Kremlin is safe behind these walls. I was lucky and the weather was good ( -2 to 0o C), so I... More

I love it. Have a view from the Sofiyskaya embankment and the Bolshoy Kamenny most (Big Stone bridge). They are the best ones for pictures.

Better, bigger and more impressive than expected. It was a fortress, though in good conditions nowadays. The main tower was closed for reconstructions, but it's ok. It's better to have someone to tell you a history about Kremlin, or at least to have a guidebook to understant what you are looking at.

Here's where Mr. Putin and his henchmen meet for meetings and other diplomatic relations. The chandeliers and other architectures inside the Kremlin definitely proved that Russia is an amazing and...
