Specialty Museum
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.

  • Date and place of the Kremlin who became a symbol of Russia today-the Kremlin or the Russian-language means fortress or Castle-located in the center of Moscow near the River (Moskva) and a collection of buildings and palaces and magnificent beauty and historical churches featuring architecture mixed between greatness and beauty of modernism-the Kremlin on red square where the famous balkrimeln takes pretty high fences and there are several museums and inside churches visited by millions of tourists each year from various Over the world and also there are some graves of some heads of Russia and adamaeha from the likes of (Lenin and Stalin) and also became the seat of the Russian Government and a symbol of its power-I would recommend all tourists visit the Kremlin and wander inside to see the beautiful palaces and historic churches-not filming trip to Russia without visiting lkermlin Moscow because of Russia today.

  • 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.
