You can't go to Moscow and not go into the Kremlin. There's just some buildings and really old churches inside it. They could use some paint. They are not the usual ornate European Christian churches. They are very very old and look it. You must visit once but not twice.

The sheer scale of the red brick walls of the Kremlin is impressive.The building is magnificent. The whole area is spotless. The gardens full of begonias in huge colour co-ordinated displays.

Remembering being there before, we could be sporadic about what to see when in Kreml ten years ago. Now it is cleaner, but at the same time - you must buy your tickets and be at the right place at the right time! Go to the Armoury and se Fabergé and Russian treasures, walk around, see the diamonds etc (diamond... More

First - you can same time and some, if not all standing in line, by purchasing tickets online in advance. The Armoury, additional ticket, displays gold and silver bought by, or gifted to the tsars, costume, weapons and some carriages. Definitely plenty of 'bling' which somewhat surprisingly survived the revolution. The architecture tour offers entrance to the several churches on... More

Go early! We booked our tickets online for the General Admission and the Armoury (timed Ticket). It was easy and fairly quick to exchange the E-ticket for the actual tickets at the designated counters. No problem with bags and standard sized rucksacks, they only seemed to be worried about large bags. Security didn't take too long. Once inside it was... More

When we came, there was an event going on so a lot of areas were closed off, which is a shame. I would have liked a little more time to look through the streets. The GUMM mall is located in the area. Again, we didn't have time to explore either. I guess it's one of the disadvantages of tour groups.... More

Like many big ticket attractions in Moscow - and Russia more widely - this experience has become lessened by busloads of tourists more interested in elbowing their way to the perfect selfie than really experience anything. Descended by the hordes.

You buy your ticket -- you'll probably have to ask where to do that as signage is not great -- you walk to the security entrance, you wait to get through the security entrance (it seemed they would let people in as people came out) and then you begin your journey -- and it's a lot of walking! I was... More

Went with a large group of frends. Lots to walk around but being inside the kremlin was a fantastic experience. The history was amazing. The churches were amazing and beautiful. They did not allow photographs. Even then the significance was explined in detail by our lovely guide.

Neighborhood Profile
Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of state institutions and offices. To understand where modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as well.
