The sheer expanse of the red brick walls of the Kremlin is breathtaking. So much has gone on behind these red barriers. All around the Kremlin is clean and tidy. Heavy traffic on the river side but serene in the gardens.

We had an amazing experience with the short time that we had. This tour will forever be one of the most unforgettable ones. Moscow Russia has lots to offer with their food and their culture.

Not much to see other than old walls and towers. If you get their on the hour you can see the changing of the guard at their answer to our tomb of the unknown soldier. It is a nice ceremony.

You can see the wall of the Kremlin from Red-square or when you walk in Alexander park. You also can see it if you take a sightseeing trip on the boat or if you drive through Moscow with the taxi.

The walls and the towers are a unique highlight of the Kremlin. It is noche to take a walk following the walls from the outside.

We couldn't get very close as Red Square was closed for preparation for a concert when we went. The walls and towers were still impressive though. Worth a visit.

This is the heart of Moscow where all the government parastatals and Presidential office is located. It's quite historical and it's surrounded by breathtaking architectural buildings, well planned.

Looked over these walls and towers while in Red Square. TV and photos don't do justice to the impressive buildings. You can't visit Moscow and fail to go to see these structures.

Even you don't like history too much you must visit! Art, gardens, history, stories, it's fantastic!
