As an American I always thought that the kremlin was just the main government building Wrong! Kremlin means fortress and the buildings of the kremlin are inside the fortress walls You must buy a ticket for a certain time slot to visit inside the walls...More

Until our very patient local guide explained it to me, I thought that Kremlin was a place in Moscow. I've since learnt that Kremlin means any walled/fortified complex in which there is a citadel and possibly a government building or two. Oh the things you...More

This is the boundary that separates the Red square from the interior churches and government administrative offices. The photo opps is across the river. The wall itself is red and the color is very vivid at night with the luminations.

The Kremlin is located in the centre of the city, set high on the Borovitsky Hill overlooking the Moskva River.

Special to see such a momentous part of history that is built into these walls. You will see them when you see many of the other places in Moscow - no need for a special visit to the walls only, they are everywhere!

The Kremlin had a political meaning for me. Now having seen this spectacular complex it's certainly an architectural treasure trove. You have to have good walking shoes and be walking ready as it's not only the Kremlin you should walk around to see. So much...More

It is a big, beautiful red wall that surrounds the imposing Kremlin building. The towers rise up at intervals to give the structure greater beauty.

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.

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

I don't remember how much tickets were. They were purchased through a private guide. It is not open everyday... if you go, the most interesting part is the Armory (separate tkt). And that is not open everyday.
