Kermlin is super easy to find and there's a walkable road that goes all the way around the walls. There's a lot of interesting small and big places along the way. It might be difficult to find crosswalks to get out of the area.

It has great size and first time you see it gives some feelings that you are small and this complex is very-very big.

Once you stand in the red square and look all around,history comes to life. It was great. Unfortunately it was a Thursday and I couldn't enter because it was after 1 pm.

What to say, recognizable for every Russian citizen The Kremlin is seen in the distance and all the harmony of the ensemble of the Kremlin is better observed from the opposite side of the Moscow River with the Sofia quay or the Great stone bridge. From the bridge, by the way you can make great pictures on the background of... More

very nice wall and building. But the far hides the fact that it needs to be restored in various places.

It is sad that neither Trip Advisor or their many so-called contributors can understand plain English: Walls and Towers do not include Cathedrals and Museums and the rest of the enormous Kremlin complex on which most of the previous “reviewers” have based their reports. Let us get down to facts: The walls that encircle the Kremlin cover a length of... More

I walked around the Inside of the walls today and had a blast. I also walked outside the walls last night around 10pm. Both are exceptionally worth doing - great views and beautiful architecture! Keep an eye on the pedestrian crossings - otherwise you will have a Russian guard shouting at you! (Speaking from experience here!) Definitely worth a trip.... More

Buying a ticket was a bit of a nightmare. You must make sure you it a ticket before getting in a queue also there are different tickets for different areas at different prices.

This is my lasting memory of Moscow. Impressive. Wonderful and historically important. Absolutely don't miss it (would be hard to). Take a tour. WATCH YOUR WALLETS (Russians have professional thieves on duty everywhere).

We were staying near old Arbat street so were able to walk here, which took about 40 minutes , what surprises me is there is nothing in English so unless you read or speak Russian you have no idea what the history is behind any of the buildings or churches, it would be a good idea to buy a detailed...
