Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 4,800+ 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.

  • easy access, everything is in several languages. The Cyrillic is understandable because this Spanish form. The guards are very cool, especially if the President is in the Kremlin however walk is beautiful. Museums, churches and history that keep their walls so as to beauty of its gardens with snowy pines is simply a delight, more when you want to know the history of the Czars and the revolution

  • Very beautiful place with very old history in it. People who think it's about communism only are so wrong. You can't even imagine how old the history of this place is. Just spend some time to read something about this place before visiting.
  • When you are visiting Moscow, the red square and Kremlin are places you need to see. Be on time in the morning to buy a ticket, so you won't have a long queue. You must leave bags and stuff behind at a guard. After visiting the Kremlin, you get on the red square. Walking from there to get your bags back is just a few minutes.
  • Neat building but Putin wouldnt stop talking about his fursona the whole time ( an otter if you were curious )
  • Great place, worth the visit. A few amazing cathedrals inside, however must of them are now exhibitions.
  • Residential place of one of the most powerful and important world leader in the world my favorite Russian President Vladimir Putin
