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.

  • Really too good example of Russian architecture... It gives us a essence of how rich the Russian architecture is... Very fine carvings in the wall of the building... Many national events are held here periodically.... Vlamidir Putin also comes here often... Must be visited if one tours Moscow... It is greatest among the buildings of Eurasia and Europe...
  • This is a place whoever visit we never forget in life. The symbolic monument of Russia is must see for everyone who come to Russia. Here is the Kremlin, the saint Basilica and Gum mall and other historic Places. It is always a lively place where thousand of people both tourists and dwellers come to relax, walk, enjoy and take nice pictures.
