The Kremlin fortress boasts walls and accumulated over centuries. The site was a wooden fortress centuries past until destroyed by The Golden Horde (Tatars). Added security and prosperity as a trading center meant more ornate architecture, including spires and churches. Eventually moats became parks with elevated walkways into the Kremlin.

A walk around the Kremlin is also worth it, but I do suggest taking a tour of the inside as well. There was a bit of walkway construction at the river end, but did not detract from the spectacular walls. The distance around is just under 2.5 kilometers and is not a difficult walk. The red stone structure with the... More

Daunting yet welcoming. So thick with that appearance of protection. As you walk next to the walls and then pass through one of the entrances you realise just how big they are. Then modern technology took over and they lost their defensive aura.walk over one of the nearby bridges in the late afternoon or early evening to see them at... More

This is in the heart of the city and basically heart of country and nation. This is a unique architecture ensemble, and whatever you say - this is world cultural heritage. Part of the wall is also necropolis for most outstanding personalities of Soviet era. Unfortunately general public in not allowed along this part of the wall. The red brick... More

It is in the Alexandriyski (sp?) garden right over the Red Square exit. It is on top of every hour and is an absolute must see. It is best to come just a couple of minutes early to be in front. We saw it once, went to eat at Mumu across the street and came out as they were starting... More

Did not anticipate the Kremlin walls and towers to be so colourful. Expected it to be grey and forbidding. But it was colourful and interesting.

First day in Moscow we just walked and walked, seeing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Guards change on the hour) St Basils GUM on one side gardens on the other Lenin's Tomb and the statues of the Russians who are buried there is a MUST. The next day we took a 4 hour guided tour of the interior. 100%... More
