Had to stand in line a little bit to get in but, it was worth the effort. Unfortunately, I do look Russian and when he asked me to open my purse I had no ideal what he was saying luckily one of the other guards came over. The Kremlin and the surrounding buildings were very nice. I would highly recommend.

Huge walls. I was especially impressed by the fact that those walls were built around 450 years ago. It must have been really imprentrable for that time. Most important touristical atraction in Moscow. Quiet and cosmopolit !!! Lenin's Memorial in its middle .Many worth to visit museum arund.

If you visit Moscow, Russia, then you must visit the Kremlin. It is a beautifully engineered fortress (translation of "kremlin") with expansive views of the surrounding city. Make sure to pay the extra to visit the armoury museum on the grounds: great examples of crowns, Fabergé eggs, clothing, carriages, armor, weapons, thrones, and royal gifts both given and received; plan...

There is nothing else to say about this beautiful place. Go see it. If you don't have enough time, you can just walk by and still enjoy the greatness.

This historic fortified complex of buildings is made all the more powerful by an amazing array of towers. Our guide pointed out the Spasskaya Tower, attempting to help us understand how truly tall it was, saying that if a man were cleaning it, he would look to be only inches high-- from where we were standing --compared to the vast...

The Kremlin grounds contain numerous churches, including one where all the Tsars were crowned, all set among beautiful rose gardens. Two impressive items on display in the grounds include the...

If you are wanting to spend some time waiting for your attraction to open it is good to take a walk all around the outside of the Kremlin Walls.

the tomb of Lenin is a big deal - especially for Russians, so DON'T try to take photos or talk whilst inside the mausoleum. Be respectful and mind your step as it is very dark inside. The Kremlin guards change at the tomb of the unknown soldier every hour on the hour and is good to watch.

Another world hides behind those red walls and towers!! Am still amazed that the general public are allowed in & the president could be not far away. The ticket offices had queues but got our tickets within 10 minutes, despite alot of rude Russian women trying to push in! It was 350rub (£5.40 approx) for churches & grounds ( We... More
