the way this architecture is built is amazing. just go back to history and imagine with the kind of technology available then, to come up with this kind of a building is amazing. keep staring at each and every design and it is mindblowing

I did not know what to expect to be honest, but I was pleasantly surprised. Three cathedrals with amazing histories. A museum, and other interesting buildings and points of interest. You can't visit Moscow without visiting the Kremlin, but take a good guide who can explain everything.

Take time going through all the buildings. There is a lot of history here and worth the view. We did not use guides as we had our own personal tour guide but I would recommend taking a guide book so you don't miss anything.

A couple of nice churches, and you might be lucky to catch a parade, but you won't get into parliament. It isn't well publicised that the Kremlin is just a name for a fortress, not the pop culture portrayal. The armoury museum is worth a quick look though.

It is worth visiting because it is the Kremlin, but without a tour guide there is not much to see, because only churches are open and armory that u have to pay additionally. Would recommend visiting it after reading a bit more.

Another must see in Moscow. Who would believe that this place really exists? Worth the walk, this place is fabulous.

I have been hearing about the Kremlin all my life and so was excited to actually see it. However, the truth is all you can visit is a few churches which are nice but there are plenty of other fascinating churches in Moscow. There are only a couple government buildings and you can't visit them.

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.
