Entry is free to this beautiful mosque. As expected women need to have their head covered. Photos with no flash are allowed. You can go up stairs at either side to look down from the gallery. The windows and structure are stunning.

Fantastic place to visit built in the grounds of the Kremlin. A must to visit and enjoy the beautiful painted walls and ceilings. Accept the dress code required for entering the mosque.
