The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Arbat
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.
How to get there
  • Borovitskaya • 3 min walk

Spectacular structure & Great walks!
Sep 2021
While you take a stroll here you see the spectacular walls and buildings of the Kremlin. It is an empowering feeling while you are here. This place is full of history dating back many decades.
The square is full of people walking & clicking pictures. Along the side you will find many cafes to sit and enjoy a meal or simply a cup of coffee!

One of Moscow's musts
Apr 2021
In one word - world famous and first grade Moscow attraction. Whether you're visiting the Russian capital for the first time or you're repeating, it's a must do.
Kremlin is a Russian word for a fortified medieval town - it's the core of Russia, that was built during the 15 c. Moscow Kremlin has a triangular shape bordered by the Moscow river to the south, Red square to the east and Alexander gardens to the west.
The walls are over 2000 m long and the main tower is the Spasskaya tower at the Red sq.
Best views are from the new built Floating bridge and Zaryadye park (read those reviews). Plenty to see and do inside the walls.

Iconic

Kremlin is an iconic symbol of Russia and a must see for any tourist. It is well looked after and kept in pristine condition. It a very large area and you need a couple of hours to walk around it. Inside there are a lot of places to see and visit too.

best seen from Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge
Aug 2019
The more than 2km long brick walls of the Kremlin form approximately a triangle, with its three sides facing the Red Square, the Alexandrovsky Garden and the Moskva river. Sometimes the view is obstructed by trees or added constructions, not so on the river side. The favourite place for me to admire these walls with its many towers is from the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky bridge

Once the walls protected the whole settlement, founded in the 12th century, but then the walls were made from wood. Later limestone was used, finally brick, at a time though, when Moscow had expanded way out of its old walls. Having lost their importance for defense, the towers were transformed into decorative elements, which can especially seen at the Spasskaya Tower facing the Red Square.

Superb!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Kremlin is one of the most famous symbols of Moscow and for a good reason. You have to check it out from the inside and outside if you want to get a good feel of Russian capital. I’ve been in Moscow many times and I always end up around Kremlin at some point.

Just explore 1st time!
Apr 2019
There is so much to take in the first time, so just explore. And it will be free! Then you can tour St. Basel Cathedral and/or inside the Kremlin next time. Stroll through GUM department store as well. Prices are high, but there are some souvenir shops that are reasonaly priced, since it is not at the airport. Metro stops are everywhere, so use it to get around. Before the World Cup, the new lines were designed to be English-friendly. Friends are telling me, the older lines are up-to-date as well.

You cannot visit Russia without visitng the Kremlin and its walls
Jan 2020
Impressive inside and out. On the day we visited there was a spiritual reading, the crowds came. This was handled pretty well and we moved through the entrance in good time. A great space to walk around, just be careful of stepping onto a road, look first. The workers drive fast through the area even though it is full of pedestrians. Police will quickly tell you if you have strayed.

Inside The Kremlin
Jan 2020
We learned the the term Kremlin referred to the imposing Wall that surrounded the perimeter of this structure. There are other walls in several other cities in Russia also referred to as Kremlin. Learn something new every day.
It was aew inspiring to be within the walls and visit the churces and armour within the Kremlin. Very emotional visit.
