Simply awe inspiring at the size of it. Takes half an hour to walk the one wall alongside the river. So much to see but don’t go on a Thursday as it is closed .

There is lots to do in Moscow and by the Kremlin it is possible to take a river tour, but also just walking around here gives insight in Moscow's history of defense and government. It is a unique place to visit. Also it is possible...More

What can you say about this monument. Very royal and outstanding. A symbol for the city. There are no words to describe the feeling when you see it.

Recommend walking around the Kremlin and along the river or hiring one of the spot bikes to ride around. There is definitely an ominous energy here that is worth experiencing. To think of what goes on behind those walls and all that has taken place...More

The red bricks of this high wall say one thing - keep out! When I was there an Indian music video was being shot, much to the bemusement of a police officer stationed there.

Take time to run around Kreml in the morning. But only during the summer. Otherwise, you will freeze. Take photos from the other side of the river or from the boat on the Moskva river.

We all didn't know what to expect other than cold, gray Stalin-ish nothing. But the Kremlin walls were built in the 1400's way before Stalin and surrounded by trees. Each tower has it's own purpose and the thick red walls form a triangle around the...More

The walls were larger than I expected and must have been very intimidating over the years. Disappointingly it closes on a Thursday.

The Kremlin is surely a key feature of any Moscow tour and rightly so. Looking at it from any angle and you get huge walls and ornate towers. Awesome

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.

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.
