There are a few really great memories I will have for ever and today is one of them. Before I began planning this trip, the Kremlin was a bit of a mystery to me. When I have seen it in movies, it always appeared to be a forbidden destination. Now I know it is pretty easy to get in the Kremlin.
Our guide for the Kremlin tour was Julia, the same guide who led our free tour. Today it was only us and three people from Brazil only one of whom spoke English, so it was almost a private tour.
Here’s a bit about the Kremlin edited from Wikipedia:
The Moscow Kremlin is an historic fortified complex at the heart of Moscow, overlooking the Moskva River (to the south), Saint Basil’s Cathedral and Red Square (to the east) and the Alexander Garden (to the west). It includes four palaces, four cathedrals and the enclosing Kremlin Wall with Kremlin towers. The complex serves as the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation.
