An amazing collection of, you guessed it. Diamonds! Entry is separate from the Armoury which it is a part of and only bought on the day you are there. There are some excellent pieces here but the emphasis is more on the jewels themselves than...More

The quantity, quality, and craftsmanship of the jewelry and gems in almost unfathomable. One display had diamonds by the kilo. Uncut, some industrial grade but diamonds nonetheless. Surprisingly none that I saw were attributed to the Romanov family. Most belonged to Peter the Great or...More

If you like the Crown Jewels you will love the Diamond Fund. As with the Armoury at the Kremlin, backpacks have to be left at the cloakroom and tickets are for a specific entrance time.

For a jewel aficionado like me, the Diamond Fond is a place not to be missed! Just to put things in perspective, almost all major diamonds found before 1905 came from India, my home country. Diamonds have been mined in India since time immemorial and...More

This was the hardest attraction to get into at the Kremlin (very hard without a guide), but it is really only for the great afficionados of diamonds. It would be ok to spend 5min there as a sidebar to the main museum, but the whole...More

I took a guided tour, and it was interesting, but not the best experience. It is a strict museum, the room is a basement, and it doesn't feel comfortable. The exhibition is most enjoyable with a guide. Otherwise it is just watching jewels.

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.
