The Kremlin is the Number 1 tourist attraction in Moscow. Personally, it was the Armoury exhibition that did it for me.
This required an extra ticket and limited opening hours (during summer because of the crowd). Some people might felt it was not worth the extra ticket, or due to the limited opening hours, totally missed the opportunity to visit it.
To me, it would be an utter shame to come all the way to Moscow and the Kremlin and NOT visit the Armoury.
It is utterly opulence in abundance. The gold, silver, precious stones, diamonds crafted on chalices, bible covers, Faberge eggs, clocks, dining-wares, lamps, anything... the crystals and priceless silverware, the royal regalia, the diamond-studded thrones, the gold-plated carriages, the coronation dresses, everything... are INCREDIBLE and doubtlessly, PRICELESS. My jaws remained open the entire visit as I gaped and gaped.
After purchasing the tickets to Kremlin and the Armoury, my suggestion is to try and head to the Armoury first before you visit the Cathedrals. In summer, the Armoury is open for only 1.5 hours each session. You will want to be there when the Armoury just opens because 1.5 hours is barely enough!
You can visit the Cathedrals later as they are open longer.
