“Huge!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

It was almost a surreal experience to actually be standing or walking beside the Kremlin Walls. Hard to describe how large the whole area is and what is contained within the walls. Quite overwhelming. St. Basil's is just outside in Red Square and is equally impressive.

“Immense and Awe Struck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The walls and towers of the Kremlin are awesome, red and immense. They provide an interesting backdrop to Red Square and the view from the Moscow River.

“The big red fortress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The walls as they surround Red Square dominate the whole area and there are so e twenty towers that are visible along the entire wall enclosure. Especially note the wall along Red Square where many notables of the Soviet era are buried.

“Take a guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Kremlin is very interesting, but I would recommend to pay a little extra for a guided tour. Otherwise, you will miss the historic value, the interesting stories and the true importance of the Kremlin.
