  • Great historical heritage site in great condition.
  • Great place in Astrakhan..
  • Definitely worth it.. museum, gardens, trees and beautiful souvenirs have to come visit...and you can visit other placer really close...
  • 2 floor church!
  • Tickets can only be purchased at the box office (not comfortable) and museums scattered across the territory. At the checkout there is no normal information on museums and spiteful aunt-cashier. In museums everywhere unreadable font. The outpost is more or less interesting. Do not go on the "secrets of Astrakhan Kremlin": include film and hut too redone-160 roubles is clearly not worth it. There is no identity.
