This is the biggest and the most beautiful palace in the city, in the heart of Moscow Kremlin. It is the residence of Russian President and where official ceremonies are held. The palace is beautiful as view from outside the walls of the Kremlin. I had read that it was possible to visit it with a travel agency and only... More

I see there are a lot of reviews of the Kremlin under the Great Kremlin Palace. I don't understand the misunderstanding, but the Great Kremlin Palace, is the single, large, yellow, building that is on the outside wall on the river side. I did not go in this building but it is beautiful and very recognizable from across the river.... More

We were able to walk through several floors that contained historical collections of clothing, armaments, crowns & jewels, horse drawn carriages, and other items. The tours through the grand halls were in my mind of less interest.

Great Kremlin Palace is a popular venue for concerts, ballets and other cultural happenings. You can get a deal on the tickets and pay very little for an interesting spectacle, but it's not one of the favourite theatres I go to. The reason is that it's simply too huge, queues everywhere and if you don't get the most expensive tickets,... More

Moscow like the rest of Russia will show you the worst and the best. Unless you are staying near a hotel make sure you do not need the loo! Red Square is amazing especially for a New Year celebration. Must visit. I lived there for a few years and this review is pre-2013.

There are many positive reviews here and so don't miss this historic site! My advice would be to purchase your tickets online. You can buy tickets for entry to the Kremlin 2-3 days before (not later). Do this or you'll regret it! I neglected to plan ahead and was tortured by the rude ticket people! I have been living in...

Walking through the gates of the Kremlin, I hadn't expected to see to see a snapshot of russian architecture in one place; the State Kremlin Palace built in the 1960's sits in stark contrast to the 15th century Cathedral and churches. The Kremlin Armoury was my favourite building, pre-book as there are certain time slots for visiting if you are... More

It is rather difficult to describe the beauty of this place; within its walls there are palaces, churches and more, which really worth to see. A definitive MUST.

Really nice palace but there is no access inside it. Architecturally very good but I've given a poor because theres no public access so is a pretty poor attraction, really.
