We were surprised to realize that beside the armory (to which you need a separate ticket), there is very little to do and see inside the kremlin's walls. There are the cathedrals, if you are into that. The tzar cannon and bell could look great on pictures, but it's realy not that exciting. Unless you are going with a tour... More

There are different options to buy tickets for the Kremlin, you either buy just the churches and cathedrals, you buy the armoury or the Diamond fund. I would say just get the cathedral ticket as it's all you need to see. The system to buy them is confusing however, they do have signs in English and the people at the... More

The Kremlin is a historic site that is very popular with tourists, specially during the summer months. It us recommended that you get your tickets electronically, ahead of time, since they get sold out often. This site you can visit during the day or night since it is well lite.

We knew we wanted to go inside but were not sure how it works - whole system of buying ticets is very confusion when you don´t speak or read russian. Best to buy ticets in the machines for the Cathedral square - it is all you have to see. I had no idea Kremlin has so many historic churches and... More

Nice tour. Interesting to see the difference of a century between Kremlin and St Petersburg. I really liked the armory and diamond fund. It is a shame you can not take photos inside.

There was a lot more to do and see than we expected. The buildings and architecture are amazing, the highlight of the visit was the armoury. You could easily spend a morning in here just looking at the amazing displays of gold, silver and jewelled items. We had a guided tour and felt this was really useful and we got... More

The Armoury was extremely interesting - not just weaponry and armour. Lots of genuine costumes and memorabilia since a united Russia. You must book ahead or you may miss out. The churches were very interesting as usual.
