Moscow Kremlin, Moscow

#1 of 443 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.

  • It's a historical place. Good atmosphere and weather.🌍☀⛅☁💧⚡❄ Best place to visit. Peaceful and vibrant places. Good place to take pictures. 🌆🏜🌠
  • Amazing!!! You must go I recommend getting a guided tour and you must Book online before you go. The guide May not have excellent English but they are really good and will explain again if you need to. They will also give you advice on the area or more insider info on Moscow if you’d like advice on where to go. I really was in awe of the Kremlin
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
