This place holds a lot about the Russian history and the Soviet period. I didn't have the chance to go inside, but I had the chance to see the changing of the guard and walked around the place and it was great.

The red Kremlin walls and towers are amazing to see. You can walk all round the outside. Definitely worth going inside the Kremlin and Armoury.

The impressive red wall, which presumably gives its name to the square along with the political imagery, is in stark contrast to the GUM store directly opposite. This is the most photographed wall of the Kremlin - fortress - though the entire wall is circumnavigable...More

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

There is no charge to enter Red Square or the Kremlin. At night Red Square is all lite up, looks beautiful. I do not know that access to the Kremlin is available in the evening.
