Moscow Kremlin (Moskovsky Kreml), Moscow

(4.5/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
A fortified complex at the heart of the city, Moscow Kremlin (Moskovsky Kreml) 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.

  • This is the heart of our country, our history and our pride. It turns out not to be in the Kremlin in summer, winter da winter. Beautiful, majestic wonder. All around is steeped in the history of the (admittedly with induced gloss), but nonetheless insanely cool. Before you travel, read historical literature.

  • We went in New year. Was quite easy to buy tickets and walk in there. I guess most the people was in the Red square, in the christmas market ( very crowed) 
  • Appearance is very beautiful and I took many pictures. Inside is similar to be honest, I was getting bored. Caution is required because there is place not according to season and time.

  • Heart of the capital. It's huge all worth a visit. A good time for a walk, sometimes,because of the large tourist groups seems queues at the checkout. A serious examination of the entrance, do not advise you to go with big bags or clogged backpack.
  • This was the best trip EVER! So if you wanted to go stop "wanting" and GO!!! this was the best
  • Be prepared for extreme queues, bad organisation and chaos. Giving it 5 stars because it was worth to see despite it all.
  • The Kremlin is so elegant and gorgeous! The churches are very historic and they are very important in russian history. I can also see the place where Putin works,amazing!!! The history of the Kremlin is so fantastic, if you spend some time on the history books, you can understand the Kremlin in a new dimension, not only from the exterior of the churches and buildings in the Kremlin. The Kremlin is a great place to experience the history of Russia.
  • You need minimum two days (or one if you are very lucky). It's bad organized, no signage - you have to ask 5-6 times the policemans (there are thousands of them) where is Armory or any other museum. What you can see there, on the other hand, is unique and marvelous.
