Moscow Kremlin, Moscow

#1 of 453 in Museums in Moscow
Must see · World heritage site · Historic Site · Specialty Museum
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.

  • Really too good example of Russian architecture... It gives us a essence of how rich the Russian architecture is... Very fine carvings in the wall of the building... Many national events are held here periodically.... Vlamidir Putin also comes here often... Must be visited if one tours Moscow... It is greatest among the buildings of Eurasia and Europe...
  • This is a place whoever visit we never forget in life. The symbolic monument of Russia is must see for everyone who come to Russia.

  • Moscow Kremlin Square One of the most beautiful squares in the world Very majestic and glorious A combination of the past history of the Russian Empire and the new generation and the beautiful church that characterizes this magnificent Pegah In this place you can see Lenin's mummy, which is carefully cared for, and you can see one of the most luxurious passages in Europe. This place is one of the most special attractions of Russia
  • This is a very important landmark and historical location used by the Russian government. My favourite period is the Soviet era which presented a country as a world superpower and was led for 29 years by Stalin, which was both praised and criticized. Gorbachev introduced relaxed rules and the country dissolved, however it remains a key place to see in Moscow and world landmark, as well as a building of beauty linked with Tsarism, Communism and Capitalism.
