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.

  • It's history all over. A full day of walking is a must. It's a dream come true for most. A weèkday is preferred. Different type of tickets are required for each locations. 
  • The place is iconic and leaves you amazed. There is such a lot to see. You need an entire day here to see the monuments. 
  • THE wall in its entirety this painted bricks that are are not so originally, everything is painted but the effect is very good, that if, the view can be equal from the bridge there at the end of the Park and little more, but since you are going because you have to see it.
