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.

  • You can't leave Moscow without visiting the Kremlin! The Citadel is absolutely interesting and perfectly groomed. To fully grasp the beauty and historical and artistic importance of all facilities available inside and lovely gardens would be wise to take a guide

  • In contrast to some tourists who look at all without a guide and then got only 20%, we have booked a brilliant tour guide through our travel provider Injoy Russia. German studies, incredible knowledge about everything. No matter what I said, you knew the answer. Since she was also often in Germany could give some good additional information and knew how we think so. I can only recommend you. Since you bought the necessary tickets we came in without any problems and without long waiting periods everywhere and also had no communication problems at security checks that you went through several times. I can only recommend anyone to book a such great guide. In contrast to many negative guide statements we had a great guide, but also not surprising was, because that is my experience with Injoy Russia, the book only people who already know them and know that they are top.

  • Very interesting place where you could not imagine they are so many things when you have never gone there.

  • 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.
