That is the number 1 place to visit for all foreigners being in Moscow. You can feel the history and be part of the people who understand the Russian unusual spirit.

You must go inside the Kremlin if you are in Moscow. You can see where the government works and you can see the churches inside the walls. It has a lovely garden that you can walk in, but it's obviously not going to be beautiful in the winter.

All I'll say is you'd be the most cynical person on earth not to appreciate the enormity and grandeur of the Kremlin. Completely blew me away by its history and size. Photos or films do the Kremlin no justice. If you visit Moscow , visit this landmark and Red Square too.

Even at temperature down to -20°c the beauty of Red Square with its wonderful crafting of architecture and beautiful paint work's certainly caught many visitors eyes keeping everyone here warmest and feeling great! A certain point that visitors will keep coming and again.

People might think that the armoury chamber is just a museum of ancient war instruments and may not be interested to go check it out. Big mistake. It was one of the highlights of my tour of the Kremlin in Moscow. The royal gowns and chariots, the royal gifts, etc. were all magnificent. It would be a pity to give... More

One thought constantly following me during my trip to Kremlin, was WHAT IF?... What if the Kremlin territory was open for the tourists and residents of Moscow as any other part of town? 24/7. What of to was full of different restaurants, coffee shops, stores... It could be a great part of town. The main attraction in Moscow. But unfortunately... More
