Before visiting the Kremlin it is nice to have a walk around the outer walls and enjoy the different sort of Towers. They each have there own history.

It is worth to walk about the wall. It wont be too long so you wont feel tired afterward. The wall is grand and look stunning. You should go when you visit moscow, esp it is closed to most other famous spots.

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.
