The world famous Kremlin is one of the most important historic complex and is easily recognized around the world as a symbol of Russia and the seat of its president.
It's really big, bigger than I ever imagined. There are four palaces, four cathedrals and 20 towers that make up the remarkable Kremlin and a massive wall that surrounds the area.
The incredible kremlin which means fortress in Russian, also overlooks two more of Moscow's most famous sights, Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral. For years it had been our dreams to visit these exquisite places and we could not contain our excitement when we reached there. They look fabulous in postcards and on TV but they're even more impressive up close.

The history of Moscow Kremlin goes back to old times. During the Middle Ages, the Kremlin served as an administrative and religious center and also provide protection against enemy forces. When the city was under attacked, the civilians were encouraged to seek immediate shelter within the complex.
Apart from the historical monuments, it's quite common to find Russian nesting dolls sold everywhere in the city. They are wooden painted dolls that come in creative styles and different sizes. I bought a few sets of these unique dolls and gave them as souvenirs to my family and friends.
