Unfortunately, when I was there they had a huge laser light show going on. So the entire middle of the square was closed off except for small parts at the beginning and end of the square.

There was a festival of lights, so 4D installations and performances took place on the Red Square, which was nice!

Red Square was so beautiful!! I was lucky to be there in December on a snowy night. I arrived at Dusk and the sky was so blue. Many people were out enjoying the snow and the skating rink. The GUM centre was right nearby for a quick warm up inside, then back out again to see all of the sights... More

Nice place specialy at night. Clean and big historic place. You must to see it when you visit Mooscow. From november to march there is skating-rink and you can see some ice hockey competitions. You may see also Kremlin and Lenin mausoleum located at the Red Squere.

The history and architecture are amazing.. They certainly did a very good job of preserving, maintaining this complex. Even in the winter time, the snow were scraped to the sides, therefore people could walk without fearing of falling..
