From the outside you can see roof tops and nothing else, but for 500 rubles (about £5) you can get inside with a "Cathedral Square" entry ticket. If you want to go into the Armoury or the Bell tower, these are extra and you may...More

I enjoyed visiting the Kremlin. It's huge! Their treasury and Diamond Fund are worth the trip itself. See Catherine the Great's scepter and crown! The Kremlin cathedrals are nice. I like the outside of the church of the annunciation in particular. No pictures are allowed...More

The centre of Moscow and an impressive place to visit when visiting this city. Surrounded by large walking areas far away from the intensive Moscow traffic.

You have to pay to get into the Kremlin, but is is worth the visit. Take a guided tour or get in one in advance. All three churches are worth visiting. Have to say they all look very similar from the inside.

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as

The treasury needs separate tickets. And I was told when I went that booking in advance was required for security reasons.
