Discovery Russia - Best Russia Tours and Vacation Packages
Kremlin and Red Square imageKremlin and Red Square

Enjoy a guided visit to the Moscow Kremlin, and see all the treasures of the famous museums and Armory Chamber. “Kremlin” is not actually a specific place name, but means “fortress”. The most well-known kremlin is of course the one in Moscow, at Red Square. And Red Square is not actually Red because of the red bricks, but because "red" in the old Russian language meant "beautiful". So…there are many kremlins in Russia and in Moscow alone we can show you a few!

In winter, Red Square turns into open air skating rink.
