I was expecting once I go to Kremlin to visit a palace. But it seems there palaces in that area are only dedicated to the governors and no public visitor can enter to them.

In this case, you have the opportunity to walk in the area (probably some governors passing by their luxury cars) and visit the for churches in the main spare.

There are also a very big (broken) bell and a canon which are 2 attractions of this palace.

Everything - the walls and the towers (see my other review), the churches and the cathedrals, the museums, the Tsar-Cannon and the Tsar-Bell - is a masterpiece in its own right. Some places house Russian government facilities and are closed to the public, but apparently plans are underway to change that. The recent demolition of a Soviet-era building near the Spasskaya tower has resulted in pretty nice views of the rear of the tower and the surrounding buildings. The only foreign object is the Kremlin Palace from the Khrushchev era.

You will need to deposit large bags and backpacks at the storage facility near the entrance at the Kutafya tower. Please note that you exit at the Spasskaya tower, which is a bit of a walk.

Please don't visit the Kremlin without a guide. There is so much to know about all the beautiful historical Palaces, Churches, Cathedral and objects, that it would be a pity not to be informed about them. Plan at least a half day to spent there.

The most enjoyable thing for me was that when you are in the complex,you are in 500 meters distance to Mr.Putin! Other churches and visiting sites are not the thing that I expected.
Churches are fantastic for their own but you visit a lot of churches in Moscow and this churches won't be enjoyable for you.
I recommend to put it in your empty time.
