Whilst the more spectacular buildings and displays are inside the Kremlin, there is still so much to enjoy just strolling around the perimeter outside. Nice parks and gardens plus numerous places to enjoy meals and drinks while watching the passing parade. One "attraction" to enjoy is the hourly changing of the guards at the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier". The... More

Very unusual combination of history and today. You can feel the spirit of all Russian rulers from very long time ago and until now. The best place to visit in Russia.

If you want to get away from people and just take a leisurely stroll while taking pictures, this is a good way to do it. It doesn't cost any money and the red brick makes for some dynamic pictures. You can walk all around the Kremlin and Red Square. It feels like you're more alone when you are walking the... More

Having walked around The Kremlin a few times, we decided to get tickets and go see the inside. We did not visit The Armoury, which I regret but will on the next trip. We got tickets for The Cathedrals and spent a good few hours inside these and walking around the grounds.

Being in Moscow how could you miss this experience. It is very interesting and thrilling. There are a number of buildings and art shows to see. Plus a church or two. Many opportunities for photos. I wish they would have had water/drinks since it was extremely hot there.

This is the seat from where all the czars and rulers controlled Russia for ages. The Entire area needs about 2-3 hours to be seen. The Kremlin entrance is very grand. Tickets can be purchased in the entrance. Its advisable to buy tickets for the cathedrals, Diamond fund and the armoury museum. The diamond fund has a break, i think... More

A walk along the walls and the famous towers of the Kremlin is a great experience! This is nice at any time of the year, but it has to be both day and night, since the views are scenic (and different, depending the time of the day), like a fairy tale. The bright red color, the guards, the size of... More

If you visit in winter, as I did, make sure you are prepared, because it is cold. Thick parka, woolly hat, couple of jumpers, thermal socks and waterproof boots. You might look daft in the UK, but in Moscow you blend in. With snow everywhere it made for picturesque scenery, and well worth the effort.
