Very peaceful inside the walls with well maintained gardens. The view from the war memorial are superb and I liked the military display. A must see in Nizhny !

I did not know that it was Buildt by Italian architects. In the arches of the fortress walls is noticeable. There is something to see: the wall itself, the old buildings on the site and the exposure of military equipment of the 2nd World War.

The walls and towers of the Kremlin are very atmospheric and really do give the city a very special feel. Do not forget to walk the walls and to enjoy climbing on the old military vehicles parked inside the Kremlin grounds.

This was a hi-light of my trip to this City. A nice place to walk around with stunning views across the rivers and the city. Only a few minutes walk from the main walking shopping street in the city.

No queues. But the lady has not warned us that one kilometer that we would cover is not just even!But we should know better ourselves! This one km was an experience! So steep stairs I haven't seen anywhere! But what a thrill! One just understands that Kremlin has never been a museum - it was a fortress to make it... More

In principle this Kremlin is nothing like the one of Moscow (which is good, otherwise no sense to see it), there is a park with Eternal Fire, good view over the river, some military machines (children love them!), all that is free. And if you pay some 150 RUB (approx 3 EU), you can stroll the walls and see some... More

The kremlin compound houses the most historical buildings and sights in the city. A visit must include buying a ticket to the armoury. This addition is essential showcasing the best parts of Russian history. The weapons, carriages and suits of armour were a highlight. Without seeing this, there are only a few cathedrals to see. Take a guidebook or rent... More

Nothing gives more pleasure to the average Russian ticket seller or security guard than causing delay and general inconvenience to foreigners, unless it is to do the same to fellow Russians. Getting into the Kremlin, like anywhere else in Russia, is to experience multiple queues and stupefying bloody-minded bureaucracy. That said, the churches in the Kremlin are beautiful.
