Moscow and Red Square in particular were so much more beautiful than I expected. Great place to walk at night and so well lit. I would love to spend more time exploring this site. But whatever time you can devote, it is worth it. well worth it.

This was my first visit to Moscow after the Soviet Union. The Red Square is still impressive and a MUST when visiting this city.

there is a sad mood in the air, I don´t know why. You must pay to get into, but there are amazing buildings inside ;)

You can't visit Moscow and not visit the Red Square, just standing there is incredible, everyway you turn you will find a building worth visiting and watching. We were there in late winter and the sight of it at night whit snow was amazing.
