This was part of our first visit to the Kremlin. It is definitely well presented but, like most of the tourist sites, overcrowded for most of the time. For me personally it wasn't so interesting, but to be clear that is because we had visited...More

Wonder how communism came to power in Russia, the Armory will provide you the answer. Unbelievable wealth! From the carriages to the jewels czarist Russia is on display.

The Armoury is filled with Russian treasures - an absolute must to visit but you must go with a guide. There is so much to see, you need someone to guide you through it all.

Amazing array of Russian excesses during the Romanov era. Weapons, gowns, carriages -- they are all on display. Also explains why modern-day Russia has some of the alliances it has today (i.e., Iran).

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
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
