The Kremlin's redbrick walls and 18 towers were built at the end of the 15th century by the Italian craftsmen Pietro Antonio Solari and Antonio Fryazin. The famous Spasskaya (Saviour) Tower is the main and official entrance to the Kremlin and its symbol.

A fascinating place to explore and wander around. Although much of the square was blocked off by preparations for a big event this was still an amazing place to see.

After reading and hearing so much about the Kremlin, it was worth visiting the grounds as it's impressively large. However, one can only visit the grounds, churches within the compound and the Armoury. The Red Square was completely covered up by a stage; therefore, no...More

The Kremlin Walls stand out with their fire-red brick walls and tall watch towers that punctuate these walls along their sides and corners. The walls still do what they were meant to do – keep out the hordes –no entry unless a ticket is bought....More

The actual walls are free to see....everything else costs money at the Kremlin. You can see the outer walls from many points around Red Square, the bridge and Alexandrinsky Gardens. It was worth paying to see inside the Kremlin walls though.

Pretty to look onto the Kremlin from outside the walls. The walls are way larger than they appear in the photos. It looks like a very well fortified fortress even to this day.

There is no charge to enter Red Square or the Kremlin. At night Red Square is all lite up, looks beautiful. I do not know that access to the Kremlin is available in the evening.
