I always had the (uneducated) impression that the Kremlin was just the governmental offices of Russia. I was wrong; the Kremlin (which means "fortress" and almost every Russian town of any size has one) contains historic churches, gardens and the Armory museum (which is contains all of the jewels, gowns, carriages and 11 of the Faberge eggs owned by the Tsars) is a must-see.

Sail Date: May 2018
We only went into two churches here and looked around the grounds. I thought we would have been able to go into part of what I now know to be The Royal Palace and which is seen on formal occasions, so a bit disappointed.

Again: We did the all-day trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow via high-speed train, and while expensive, was well worth it and we were very glad we did. Extremely interesting just driving around Moscow, but the tour of the Kremlin with all its churches and the museum with Faberge eggs was fascinating. Crystal had obtained a private tour of the Kremlin Palace, which only a handful of people get to do a day and it was awesome. It was a very exclusive tour, our guide who used to be Mikhail Gorbachev's translator was phenomenal, and the beauty of the palace was astounding. Then we had an incredible Russian meal at the most lavish restaurant I've ever seen. Finally, we toured Red Square and got some great pictures, time for shopping, etc, then back on the high speed train (4 hours each way). Returned to the ship after midnight, but would highly recommend- a once in a lifetime experience. The thousands of others at the Kremlin & Red Square did not get to see what we did in the Kremlin Papace. Read Less
