What an amazing place to be!! I was amazed by the unique architecture, colors, gold, discipline, history and greatness. It is a must see for tourists and tells you a great deal about the city's history.

The 3 main churches where the Czars were baptized, prayed and buried were all inside the Kremlin walls with the typical Greek Orthodox internal Architecture and Icons but with the Russian Exteriors with Golden domes and Russian Crosses.

If you get the Moscow Pass (500rubles), then entry to the Kremlin is included. You could easily spend a whole day walking around; the cathedral's are incredible works of art, the icons while mainly dulled by candle smoke are still wonderful to see - the Archangel Cathedral contains the vault of Ivan the Terrible. Just outside of the Cathedral area... More

All I knew it had a large wall around it. No idea of the wonderful secrets found behind the walls. Stunning exhibits in the various buildings. Could probably spend 2 or 3 days here and not get bored.

There is a great deal to see and the highlight for us were the cathedrals, particularly... More

The Kremlin is a must see. The grounds are surrounded by high walls protecting this historic seat of government on Red Square. Paintings, tapestries and Faberge eggs are among the many exquisite items in the Kremlin collection. There are several churches and chapels and a gift shop offering high quality selections.
