This place will give you a taste of how the Tzars lived and what they were accustomed to. You will see jewels that cant be seen anywhere else. It is well worth the extra ticked. Tickets cannot be bought ahead of time, you have to buy them the same day you will visit, they are time specific and very limited,... More

This was the best part about visiting Kremlin! You get to see royal jewelry including the crown of the Romanovs; some stunning jewelry crated by the modern Russian artists; and some raw metals.

Full disclosure: I am a gem enthusiast. However I must recommend this small exhibition to everyone. There are gems that are simply jaw dropping and gold/platinum nuggets the size of bowling balls. Must be seen!

Actually it is a huge safe in the middle of the Kremlin full of Russian crown jewels (at least of what's left of them). Still the Large Imperial Crown and scepter with the famous Orlov Diamond are on display. And a soldier with a Kalashnikov at the door. Also gold and platinum nuggets and diamonds from Siberia - famous Yakutia... More

The jewels in this collection need to be seen to be believed. They are truly mind boggling. We could not believe the size of some of the gems and the intricate work in some of the pieces. It is beautifully curated and they only let a certain number of people in at a time so its not crowded and you... More

Exhilarating & Spectacular... MUST visit.. It is not a large area.. Probably just two rooms.. But the Collection is impressive. The Eye of an Indian God, probably Ashwathama's third eye, was interesting to me.

It only took me 30 minutes to walk around here but it is well worth the extra entrance price. There are some amazing pieces of gold and platinum on view and lovely jewels.
