Tour of the Kremlin : Moscow

A symbol of the former USSR, the Kremlin in Moscow brings up all sorts of associations, but there’s so much more to the Kremlin than history of cold war politics. For the tourist, the Kremlin offers grand Russian architecture with palaces, churches, cathedrals, and museums. I skipped the museums, and headed to the Kremlin complex of churches, and was lucky to catch a parade of arms taking place. If you start your Russian tour from Moscow and haven’t been to Russian churches, then you’ll find this a treat, the Russian church style is very different than other types of Christianity.

Expect to spend atleast 2-3 hours roaming around between the different buildings. There is signage in English and the dominant European languages, as well as guided tours you can join.

Two minutes from the red square, definitely considered a must-do when in Moscow. I did this on my very first day, a great way to kick off your Moscow tour.
