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.

  • Very impressive, journeying by car at night, along the Kremlin. Certainly one of the main attractions of the Kremlin in Moscow. Not only because of the history, but also for its beauty.

  • Weather permitting, the Golden domes of the Kremlin look just insanely. such greatness. A particularly good view from the patriarchal bridge.
