One wall of the Kremlin forms one of the walls of Red Square. As I recall there are 5 or 7 different towers. Not one is like the other. The workmanship on the walls and towers is exceptional and very stunning. It also looks very very beautiful at night. Be sure to get a tour of Mosow at night when... More

We were impressed with the displays. The grounds were immaculate. No gum stuck to the ground, or even bird poop in the square.

The Kremlin is an obvious must see on any trip to Moscow. The gardens and cathedrals are wonderful and additions such as the tsar's bell are well worth seeing. Pay extra for museum entry; it's worth it. The interiors of the churches are stunning. Shame no photos.

Lots to see in and around the Kremlin walls - walk through the Red Square. Many photo ops. To be found around the Red Square, St. Basil's, Lenin's mausoleum and Rym or GUM dept store.

You can approach the Kremlin from the Red Square side or go around to the other side to get in. From Red Square you see all the stuff you see on TV: Lenin's tome, The burial makers for famous soviet citizens and the famous red brick walls. The good stuff is inside and you have to go around to see... More

Contemporary Kremlin was built from bricks by Italian architects replacing a lime stone fortress which originally was made of wood. Magnificent, large, extremely well-kept. Beautiful vies from the river, from the bridges, from surrounding streets and squares. Naturally it attracts crowds of tourists but it is a must-see, if not a must-visit (for those on a business trip who don't... More
