The walls around this kremlin are still in good shape. The interior doesn't look like an old kremlin, as it is filled with Soviet style government buildings.

A must visit place. Even if you just roam around the place you will feel good. Evening is the best time to see the lighting and blue sky.

Historical heart and most beautiful place in this wonderful city. Museums, panoramic view of Volga river, oldest building in the city - Kremlin wall. Take your time, go for a walk. Than to museums or one of the restaurants around.

The Kremlin is fine. You get an ok view and it's also possible to walk on the walls. We didn't do that since we thought the price was too much for that.
