You can't be there and not visualize "Wind of Change" by Scorpions. A place with a lot of history: The Czars, the Red Revolution, the rise and falling of communism. St. basil's Church.

So many times seen on television, but seeing it with your eyes from one of the Moscow quais or bridges is a different experience. Have a look at it and go inside the Kremlin to discover its secrets.

The walls and towers make a huge contribution to the urban landscape around central Moscow and are, of course, hugely impressive but unfortunately you cannot visit them as such. It's a shame because of tour of the wall walks and some of the towers and gates would, I'm sure, be totally fascinating but this just can't be done so admire... More

There's just so much history here. No one goes to Moscow without visiting Red Square, but it's important to take some time to appreciate the Kremlin. From the outside, it's impressive and intimidating, and although it may be even more intimidating on the inside when you see the guards armed with automatic weapons, it's worth going in. There are cathedrals... More

My wife and I visited Moscow Kremlin with an excellent English speaking Russian guide. We entered from Red Square via Trinity Tower. The Kremlin is the seat of the government's administration and as a result, less than half of it is accessible to the public. The existing walls and towers of the Moscow Kremlin were erected between 1485-1495. The walls... More
