The Kremlin in Izmailovo is probably the fanciest and the most extraordinary entertainment and cultural center you have ever seen. Built according to the old plan of a 17th century’s tsar’s residence, it looks like a fairy-tale place.
On its territory, you will find various interesting attractions, such as museums, exhibitions, and workshops. There is also a flea market nearby.
The entrance to the complex is free but each of the museums charges a fee of around 300 rubles. The most popular is the Museum of the History of Russian Vodka (of course:)). There is also the Museum of Bread, the Museum of Russian Traditional Toys, etc. — each interesting in its own way.
Once you get hungry, you will find a lot of opportunities to eat. Apart from numerous food stalls, there are also some cafes and high-end restaurants with Russian cuisine.
Surprisingly, there is also a wedding palace here — the Kremlin is a very popular place to get married in. So, if you visit on a weekend, there is a high chance you will see a Russian wedding party or even a few of them.
The flea market is a well worth visiting, too. Here you will see lots of antiques and hand-made goods. This is also a great place to buy Russian souvenirs.
It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Kremlin in Izmailovo is a must-visit when in Moscow! This is the place where you can feel the Russian spirit to the fullest. And you may be certain that the colorful frilly buildings that seem to be copy-pasted from a Russian fairy-tale will look great in your pictures!
