You should come to here both day and night, although it is crowded all the time. The day time experience is grandeur and powerful. The night time is elegant and mysterious.

The historic walls of the Kremlin are well worth a close look NB: Kremlin, contrary to its Cold War journalistic usage, does not refer to a single building. It is now a series of squares within historic walled fortifications. Take time to look at embelms...More

The walls are impressive and to walk around the walls and see something that you most likely will have seen in the news before is quite something. The clock tower is iconic and a view over the whole complex (sort of) can be provided from...More

You don't actually realise how big everything is, until you are standing beside it. An amazing place, that definitely needs visiting.

Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.

There is no charge to enter Red Square or the Kremlin. At night Red Square is all lite up, looks beautiful. I do not know that access to the Kremlin is available in the evening.
