Grand Kremlin Palace, Moscow

4.3
Explore the nine churches, Holy Vestibule, over 700 rooms, and five reception halls (each named for orders of the Russian Empire), when you tour Grand Kremlin Palace.The palace, meant to express the greatness of Russian autocracy, was built from 1837-1849 on the site of the estate of the Grand Princes. Its construction involved the demolition of the previous Baroque palace on the site, as well as the Church of St. John the Baptist. Be sure to check out the pink marble Andreevsky Hall, the domed roof of which features various coats of arms and symbols of the chivalric orders. Wander around the palace at your leisure, but use the website to pre-book and purchase tickets for tours of the Kremlin Armory building as there are specific visitation hours. Remember to wear comfortable shoes as the property is large and requires lots of walking.

    We have never seen so much gold together in one day inside of this palace. The building itself is quite neutral but even the roof construction is made of gold.  more »

    Visit this impressive, lavish and wonderful Grand Kremlin Palace, is a must!... .tuve lucky enough to visit him a few weeks ago and is amazed, I say lucky because you can visit once or twice a year, and in the months of July and August and off little, weekends only, if in the place, date and precise time don't miss it as sumptuous as the Hermitage and Catherine Palace in Pushkin. I recommend looking for an operator authorized tourist, in our case was Pradiz and who do so several months in advance.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
