You can't miss this . Every road and every tour guide will bring you here . It's in the heart of the city , at the "red square" and needless to say beautiful . You can take a stroll here or read sitting on a bench next to some beautiful flowers

The Kremlin and the Red Square is a MUST whenever you visit Moscow! For the Kremlin, I recommend to book a tour for the Armoury Chamber

Definitely worth the visit, to visit during the day or night. Located next to the Moscow river , which can cruise. Bring comfortable shows to walk all around it and so you can enjoy Red Square at the same time and St Basil Basilica.

Very impressive and emotional place to visit. It is recommended to have a guide that tells you the stories of the walls and the place

Great place to walk around, instead of waiting in line to purchase your tickets you can purchase them at the machine. Great place to walk around and visit some of the churches. Found all the sites very clean and interesting.

These walls are hundred of years old and while they have been refurbished and rebuilt several times in the last few centuries, it keeps their allure and their great balance between the defensive purpose and the ornamental value. Better seeing them live than in photos

Lots to see and do. Many churches, large concourse and pretty gardens to visit. Surprisingly spacious than we had expected. Easily half a day activity.
