On its territory there are many Russian churches and monasteries: The Uspensky cathedral, the Voskresenky church, the Spassky monastery (14th century), and a number of others.

Здесь очень приятно гулять. Также рекомендую заказать обзорную экскурсию в музее-навигаторе. Стоит учесть, что место популярное, и пообедать на территории Кремля в выходной день, возможно, не получится. Разных заведений здесь много, но много и туристов - все места могут быть заняты.

The old Church, the local flavor, the Kremlin heavily restored, but is beautiful!

In my opinion, is too refined. Get off the tourist trail and into the old town, just a trip back in time.
