Growing up during the entirety of the Cold War, I witnessed many events that took place in Red Square. One of my lifelong ambitions has always been to stand in Red Square and soak in all the history. It was a special feeling to stand opposite Lenin's tomb and look up at the viewing platform where I'd seen Russian leaders... More

The main attraction in Moscow is well known among all tourists. The square is quite packed with tourists, groups and so on. I went twice in 2 months and the second time they had a parade and tents and a stage installed in the center, so you couldn't see anything. Make sure you go in a day with no such... More

I always imagined Russia as gray and dull. Red Square is colorful, full of flowers and in excellent repair. GUM department store resembles the Louvre and is filled with high end retailers. Not at all what I expected, and a delightful surprise. If possible, visit at night as well as daytime to see the fantastic lights.

A surreal experience indeed to walk through Red Square and view the memorials along the Kremlin walls. A beautiful square surrounded on all sides with architectural delights, one can't help but feel they are walking back in time with the many leaders who preceeded. A great tour indeed.

What a historical icon of Russia...this was my fifth time on Red Square and each time is a unique experience. My Russian wife and I stopped by for a noon-time visit on a warm spring day back in May. Along with a wedding party from Kazahkstan, there were many people milling around, and the cafes next to the GUM department... More
