I was in Moscow for two days, one of the most important places to visit is Kremlin. Many tourists and very nice place to walk and have a photo session with marvelous architecture . Take a bottle of water with you and some cash because the ATM underground might not work and shops there take cash.

Will be pretty cold in winter since its quite big. Beautiful architecture inside. Old churches, pretty nice garden that will be more beautiful when all will bloom and small fountain will start to work. There also some themed timed exhibits usually in one of the building. So all in all you should visit just look for warmer season and weather.

The Kremlin is not just one building but a walled fortress. Quite impressive with some beautiful churches and wonderful photo ops.

Kremlin was number one in our list of must-go list. My husband and me visited Kremlin two times, in winter and summer. We absolutely loved it both times.
