After this walk back through Tsarist Russia, you'll fully understand what Mel Brooks meant when he said "It's good to be the king." Jewels, robes and crowns abound along with a fascinating history of the Russian nobility. Definitely worth a visit.

The most amazing gold and silver and ceramics you will ever see. The carriages from the tsars and the dresses of the nobility are all incredible. The most amazing thng of all was to see the Faberge egg collection made for the tsars

Here you'll find Faberge eggs, Catherine the Great's diamonds and many gowns. You'll also discover the Imperial Carriages which are studded with precious stones and gold.

An amazing collection, but in many respects unpleasant. An overwhelming focus on opulent gifts between royals. I did have a limited respect for the military armor (but why the suit for a child?) and the series of carriages on the first floor.

We went for a guided tour of the Armoury and it was better then expectations, seeing the Russian crown jewel (crowns) was great, the exhibit of royal coaches was fascinating and the section that has jewels for the royal horses is incredible

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.

Yes, but subject to availability since they have a quota for each hour of the day. Also, the queues may be very long.

You can do it by yourself and probably would be cheaper. €10 is about 650 rubles and Armoury ticket is 700. If you leave your ID card at the desk you get free audio guide in desirable language. Look on their website for... More
