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 trip itinerary planner attractions into our {2}, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • First impression, it's very huge! I think you could see from many source and pictures. The location is very accessible as it's integrated with Moscow's subway : Metro. You could get enough one day to explore this integrated tourism spot. Church, restaurants, shopping malls, museum, and souvenir shops are available. Will definitely go there again someday
  • Oh great place. Worth to visit. Life long desire. What a great courtyard. Assembling place of fully dress and official army of Russia. One feels amazing.
  • One of the major landmarks in Moscow. Amazing architecture and landscaping...Perfect touristic place. A must visit with friends and family. This is a fascinating place full of history with a unique design. Everything was well prepared. it’s a marvel that some of the buildings are over 500 years old.
  • A must visit when in Moscow. You should go early to be able to visit. There is a ticket of starting 500 Rupees. ( Convert to your currency) and the queue is quite long. There are various points to be visited without any entry fee in the campus. The best time to visit is During summer (June , July)
  • Too crowded during the day. Go early morning to get good pictures. The whole Red Square is filled with restaurants and shop. A nice place to hand around. The Kremlin is a good time pass.
