Remember there are more than the wall adjacent to Red Square. On the opposite side to the Square is the tomb of the unknown soldier where the guard is changed every hour. A good spectacle. The Square and surrounding area is safe. We saw tourist police who were stopping what looked to be locals but we were not inconvenienced at... More

These Kremlin Walls and Towers being part of the Red Square, you can only admire and getting impressed by the historical value of this total picture. However it is also very nice on a sunny day or in the cold to walk next to embarkment and get an impression of the huge vestige.

Whilst the more spectacular buildings and displays are inside the Kremlin, there is still so much to enjoy just strolling around the perimeter outside. Nice parks and gardens plus numerous places to enjoy meals and drinks while watching the passing parade. One "attraction" to enjoy is the hourly changing of the guards at the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier". The... More

Unpleasant number of numerous Officers and fence around the area. However it seems to be normal for locals

Very unusual combination of history and today. You can feel the spirit of all Russian rulers from very long time ago and until now. The best place to visit in Russia.

If you want to get away from people and just take a leisurely stroll while taking pictures, this is a good way to do it. It doesn't cost any money and the red brick makes for some dynamic pictures. You can walk all around the Kremlin and Red Square. It feels like you're more alone when you are walking the... More

Having walked around The Kremlin a few times, we decided to get tickets and go see the inside. We did not visit The Armoury, which I regret but will on the next trip. We got tickets for The Cathedrals and spent a good few hours inside these and walking around the grounds.

Being in Moscow how could you miss this experience. It is very interesting and thrilling. There are a number of buildings and art shows to see. Plus a church or two. Many opportunities for photos. I wish they would have had water/drinks since it was extremely hot there.
