Grand Kremlin Palace, Moscow

(4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If there is a possibility-be sure to visit the BKD! Here combines different epochs in the history of our country. It's a story and at the same time-the current residence of the head of State

  • A must see in Moscow. Great historical place with an amazing architecture. Overall, a great place to visit. 
  • Dressed in red square, but surrounded by walls, since that was an ancient fortress, the Kremlin is must-see. Was once residence of the tsars, and currently there are museums (museums), the churches full of stories, (of the Coronations of the Czars, of marriages and baptisms), the building where the President works and much more. We went with a guide of Portuguese language and I found it quite interesting, because she was telling us all the stories of this emblematic place.
