Kremlin Walls and Towers, Moscow

(4.7/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Enclosing the world-famous complex of buildings at the heart of Moscow, Kremlin Walls and Towers remains arguably the most symbolic architectural structure in Russian history. Originally a simple wooden fence with a few guard towers, the red brick wall visible today dates back to the 15th century. Constructed by Italian master builders Antonio Fryazin and Pietro Solari, the wall and its 20 towers provide protection for the enclosed cathedrals, palaces, and gardens, collectively designated as a World Heritage Site. Point your camera at the four remaining gate towers, still boasting their communist-era ruby stars. For a different view of the city's skyline, visit the southern section of the wall, facing the Moscow River.

  • Gorgeous place to visit with parents or other relatives of the older generation! Very together. Everyone starts rattling off the historical facts and very proud of their knowledge) Plunge in antiquity and like watching children's album homeland, wrapping inside each page.

  • Ticket køpes in a ticket office which is located to the right and down the stairs of the entrance. Costs 500 rubles per adult and when do you get with them a map where all the buildings and towers is explained. Very special and go inside the Kremlin. Well with security so go on the stripes, if not you will be spoken to. Here there is much to look at so I recommend to go in in the Kremlin before red square. The Kremlin closes at. 17:00. See the Tsar Bell, Tsar Cannon, The Ivan the great bell-tower ensemble, The church of laying our lady's holy robe ´, The patriarch's palace and ´ the twelve apostles ´ church, The archangel ´ s cathedral, The annunciation cathedral, The assumption cathedral and The armory chamber. There are toilets, cash machine and first aid. Fits well for those in wheelchairs.

  • The walls and towers, with their symbolic Red Star, you are convinced you're in what was once the capital of the USSR and the headquarters of world communism.
