Definitely a place you have to visit once in your life! Quite impressive! The only negative point is that there was a huge crowd of tourists resulting in long waits and difficult to make good pictures.

Never expected to see several cathedrals inside the Kremlin, or gardens, or the impressive Czars Bell that cracked during fabrication and has never been rung

The Kremlin is all it's hyped up to be as is the whole of Moscow. It is a wonderful inexpensive experience but you must see everything to really appreciate it. The only downside is the cost to enter the Grand Kremlin Palace to the individual tourist and how for some reason the authorities have allowed the outside of many of... More

We enjoyed a private guided visit to the Kremlin seeing the treasures of The Armoury as well as the five amazing cathedrals in the grounds, the Tsar's Cannon (never fired) and the Tsar's Bell (never rung as it broke). Allow a half day for this. Well worth it!

Collection of buildings in the city centre. The breadth of Architecture is amazing. You could spend a few hours walking around and taking pictures. If there are specific sites you want to see here, take a good look at its layout on a map beforehand. I didn't go inside any of the buildings and took a few hours. Several groups... More

We visited Kremlin as part of a two hour guided tour and saw the main sights within the walls. We saw from afar the building in which Putin's office might be, his helicopter landing pad, the churches, the bell and the "scare-off-your-enemies-canon". Definitely a must-see in Moscow, and from what we have seen, you could easily do this visit on... More

In truth I was slightly disappointed with the tour of the Kremlin. Although it looks massive from the outside we only got to see a (very) small part of it (mainly the squares and Russian orthodox churches). It (together with the walls and towers) does however look seriously spectacular when lit up at night. Please note that I have reviewed... More

I have heard about the Kremlin for so long that I assumed it was going to be magnificent, only to find out it is a collection of a few small (although historically significant) churches, a cracked bell, etc.

We visited the Kremlin several times during our trip to Russia. We stayed at an Airbnb on Tverskaya Street just a few blocks away from the Kremlin. Tverskaya Street is the main street that leads right up to the Kremlin. Our first visit to the Kremlin, we walked the perimeter first. We wanted to see the entire fort. We saw... More

I bought the ticket just to walk around the area (RUB 500) and found out that there are nothing much but since it's near the Red Square, it is ok to visit.
