I took the red metro line 1 to Biblioteka Imeni Lenina then walked through to the exit on the grey metro line 9 station Borovitskaya.

From there it was a short walk to the Kremlin complex although a couple of busy roads had to be crossed.

Due to the requirement to have a PCR test no longer than 24 hours before visiting many indoor attractions, my visit was limited to outdoor viewing.

The buildings were spectacular including gold domed churches, towers, statues and the stunning St Basil’s cathedral.

I also enjoyed walking through the snow covered Alexander Park and saw the Lenin library.

Very interesting and I must revisit to see the indoor attractions when the pandemic allows.

The place is a must in the list of POI in Moscow. The weather in Moscow in August was great and you could see the blue sky which I think is a rarity given the long winters and windy and overcast weather. This was my business visit so could not plan it properly with a proper guide. English language is not liken much in Russia. All the signboards, signage are written in Russian. The place is a crowd puller. Ppl can be seen taking selfie all around. The majestic church looks very cute. And the sprawling area near the church, clock tower can make you awes struck. Behind the walls is where the president lives but no one can find out where he lives in palatial residence. That’s what I was made to believe.

The Moscow Kremlin is one of the most famous places in the world. It's the seat of Russia for centuries and the most historic place in the capital.
Inside the walls there're government edifices you cannot enter, most important and beautiful Churches you can enter but cannot take photos, as well Royal museums like the armory and many monuments.
For seeing all the above you'll need almost an entire day, so plan carefully.

A little late in reviewing but can only say what a fantastic experience this was. Our tour guide was excellent - and patient when we were confused over the meeting place. This tour has a potted history of the Kremlin from outside its walls, after which you enter the Kremlin and explore by yourself. We opted to visit the diamond collection, something I will not forget. Whilst you are free to wander there are many restricted areas which are clearly marked. Try and combine with changing the guard at the eternal flame.

The landmark of all Soviet and Russian parades, the heavily Italian or even Roman architecture surrounding you, moseleum of Stalin, great yet kinda expensive restaurants and the heart of Moscow.

We were there in a chilly September and early in the day. However there was still a queue and once inside its pretty crowded and you will need to queue to look at exhibits and dodge between tour groups and school groups. Exquisite items on display in the armoury and a couple of other buildings to visit. Its a large complex with not much open to the public. Its still a huge drawcard.

The Kremlin is a collection of several attractions, the Architectural Ensemble (basically the main Kremlin grounds, museums and several historic Orthodox Cathedrals), the Armoury (the Treasury including carriages, Faberge eggs, jewellery, armour and ceremonial clothing), the Diamond Fund (basically a collection of individual stones and some set pieces) and the Ivan Bell Tower. We purchased our tickets on line for the Architectural Ensemble (day ticket) and Armoury (timed ticket, different day) from the official website as soon as our dates were available (17 days prior). The Diamond Fund tickets are purchased from inside the Armoury. Prices are quite cheap given the world class exhibits. We did not attempt to buy tickets to the Bell Tower following advice on line and confirmed by our guide that it is like winning the lottery and you have to hang around for hours on the one in a hundred chance that you might score tickets. Note that even though you buy in advance, you still have to queue up to exchange your “voucher” for a ticket and you will need your original passport as ID. Not sure if this is much quicker than buying tickets direct but since we were in peak time and Armoury tickets are quite limited, advance purchase is highly recommended.
We visited the Cathedrals as part of a tour with Viki Tours (Armoury we did ourselves, audio guide is free and very good but covers the main exhibits only – to get detailed commentary on everything would take a whole day) and we had planned our visit to coincide with the Ceremonial mounting parade of Horse Guard and Foot Guard of the Presidential Regiment at midday on Saturday. This is a worthwhile addition if you can plan it, but may have also accounted for the very large crowd there that day (or that could be normal in June).
Unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside the cathedrals or the Armoury Museum.

A vary attractive place to visit. The whole Russian history passes in front of you. Always over crowded. Very easy to be there. Underground is an option. Many other historical places around to visit.
