Moscow Kremlin, Moscow

#1 of 453 in Museums in Moscow
Must see · World heritage site · Historic Site · Specialty Museum
A fortified complex at the heart of the city, Moscow Kremlin serves as the official residence of the country's president, and is designated as a World Heritage Site. Overlooking the city's central square, this "fortress inside a city," as its name roughly translates, includes five palaces and four cathedrals. The giant complex sits on the north bank of the Moscow River, enclosed by a protective brick wall just over 2 km (1.2 mi) long. Although the best views of the exterior are from the other side of the river, be sure to visit the citadel's museums to see collections of Russian state regalia, arms, and armor. Check the website for special events and guided tours. Put Moscow Kremlin and other Moscow attractions into our Moscow trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Amazing!!! You must go I recommend getting a guided tour and you must Book online before you go. The guide May not have excellent English but they are really good and will explain again if you need to. They will also give you advice on the area or more insider info on Moscow if you’d like advice on where to go. I really was in awe of the Kremlin
