Moscow Kremlin, Moscow

4.6
#1 of 544 in Museums in Moscow
A fortified complex at the heart of the city, Moscow Kremlin serves as the official residence of the country's president, and is designated as a World Heritage Site. Overlooking the city's central square, this "fortress inside a city," as its name roughly translates, includes five palaces and four cathedrals. The giant complex sits on the north bank of the Moscow River, enclosed by a protective brick wall just over 2 km (1.2 mi) long. Although the best views of the exterior are from the other side of the river, be sure to visit the citadel's museums to see collections of Russian state regalia, arms, and armor. Check the website for special events and guided tours. Put Moscow Kremlin and other Moscow attractions into our Moscow trip itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Armory and change of guards are must-see in Moscow. Armory museum might require extra ticket. Definitely worth time and the visit.  more »
  • A remarkable landmark in the history of Russian nation. The monument itself speaks it’s contribution. A must visit and don’t forget to watch Changing of Guards at the entrance.  more »
  • I am sure this would have been an amazing place to visit . However, it is a total reconstruction and thus knowing its new is in my mind. A bit expensive for what you can see.  more »

  • Amazing to visit. The architecture is stunning and it’s a marvel that some of the buildings are over 500 years old. Highly recommend a tour or audio guide as it’s a little hard to work out some of the history without it. The ticket office was also way too hot and small. I’d booked my ticket in advance online so it only took 20 minutes to collect but others on the day queued a few hours. Then the entrance in wasn’t too clear either. Shouldn’t be too hard to sort out.
  • Really interesting. Be careful because of the police isn't so nice. You can see so many things. But go there when good weather is. It's better!
  • I have never ever experience such an amazing place till now my whole life you have to visit the Kremlin Square if possible once in your lifetime it should & must be a part of your bucket list. It is so peaceful once you have seen & felt this amazing place you will never want to go back but as all good things should never been let apart. The most brilliant thing is the carnival which is held outside of the fort is truly breathtaking no words can define this place I wish I could write more about it this is the real experience which is a must....
  • Like everything else in a big city in Russia, the Kremlin is full of beautiful buildings and churches. It also features a couple of oddities, like a huge cannon and a gigantic bell, that show how Russia has always wanted to portray greatness. I visited the armory museum, which displays a collection of jewls, armours, dresses, among others. Very interesting.
  • You basically have to let go of any preconceived notions about what "The Kremlin" is. Let your mind go back in history and experience this place as a giant museum. There are many facets to it and all are worth exploring. I'm sure the wall itself has undergone numerous restorations. It is currently looking pristine in its hand painted brick facade.
