It's impressive how this structure has survived for so long, despite the long history of wars that were fought around it.
The side facing Red Square (Opp GUM Dept Store) and the corner around St Basil Cathedral are the most commonly visited areas, however there is also another side which demands attention, which is on the outer side and has the change of guards, which very impressive. You can also see the flame of the fallen soldier as well as monuments marking the dead soldiers from each major city there.
While most people would visit it during the day, during tours of the attractions around the Red Square; I would strongly recommend that one visits this attraction during the night as well to take in sights of the well lid walls and towers that encircle the Kremlin complex.
To rest your tired feet, you may sit down on the benches around the Red Square or on the outer side park area (can't recall the name); and a dash across to the GUM Dept Store is recommended if you wish to use the rest room or grab a coffee on its 3rd floor.
