  • Long ago there was no such feeling when visiting the Kremlin. Really no one pointer, no sign, nothing is clear where to go and what you can see. The territory of bad tour was removed apparently not, or it is so hidden that we have found. On the territory of the Kremlin plenty of existing institutions, music school, library, museums, but all the museums were closed, including closed was Falconer yard, while the officer was on the ground, the view is not allowed.

  • It is a pity that in such a great city could not organize a road construction, restaurant area, and excursion Wednesday. Trip at once, no longer want to.

  • Interesting place, but the service beats all desire to visit historical places. Can not a season, but it's no excuse.
