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.

This is the seat from where all the czars and rulers controlled Russia for ages. The Entire area needs about 2-3 hours to be seen. The Kremlin entrance is very grand. Tickets can be purchased in the entrance. Its advisable to buy tickets for the cathedrals, Diamond fund and the armoury museum. The diamond fund has a break, i think... More

A walk along the walls and the famous towers of the Kremlin is a great experience! This is nice at any time of the year, but it has to be both day and night, since the views are scenic (and different, depending the time of the day), like a fairy tale. The bright red color, the guards, the size of... More

If you visit in winter, as I did, make sure you are prepared, because it is cold. Thick parka, woolly hat, couple of jumpers, thermal socks and waterproof boots. You might look daft in the UK, but in Moscow you blend in. With snow everywhere it made for picturesque scenery, and well worth the effort.

An impressive large wall of red brick, with guards, and towers! Well light up at night, when we were there, and with a nice walking area around the building.

Lots of walking so wear good shoes. I would have liked to spend time in the Puskin Gardens. Excellent guides provided by our Utah tour organization. We had tickets and times to enter each area. Very crowded.

It's a lot of walking here, but all worth it! It's so big that you feel like 2 days would be a good idea to cover this rather than all in a day. But worth it for certain!

As far as walls go I guess these is good ones. But to be honest, I didn't find them very interesting or even climbable.

Nice activity walking along the perimeter of the wall to appreciate the architecture and layout of the Kremlin from outside.
