While the Kremlin was not at all what we expected, we nonetheless enjoyed ourselves. I hadn’t realized it was a largely outdoor space, with cathedrals, cannons and such (I think I should’ve visited the Duma rather than the Kremlin – I’m more interested in the politics) but if you like seeing old churches, cannons, paintings, etc., then this is the...

Book your tickets or tour before you travel to avoid disappointment and arrive early and go to the Armoury first (10.00) to avoid massive crowds at the key attractions. The armoury is one of the highlights with great carriages, weapons and costumes. The Kremlin was far larger than we expected and the brick wall surrounding it is in amazing condition... More

The Kremlin is amazing however you should arrange for a tour, either group or individual. There is so much to see inside the Kremlin. It is not just a huge office building, but cathedrals and open space as well. Do not miss.

The Kremlin was a mysterious place before the Soviet Union opened up to the rest of the world. The Canons that welcome you into Kremlin and the wonderful cathedrals inside are a must see for any visitor. The cathedrals provide all historic details in English.

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

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.
