“Red Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Red Square is not to be missed. Included in the square is the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM department store in the GREAT mall and the Tomb of Lenin and other notables. At night it is lit up so beautifully it takes your breath away.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

If you're traveling to Moscow, you cant miss Red Square. The cathedral, market and (sad to say: of course) The Gum (pronounced goom), a very high-end shopping mall filled with food, coffee and the most expensive bathroom in all of Russia!

“Red Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

St Basil's and the views of Moscow from Red Square. Very crowded with visitors from all over the world. A lot of scaffolding was erected while I was there - some for repairs; a lot in preparation for Sochi (Olympics).

“A Must when you visit Moscow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you can only do one thing in Moscow, then come here. The other thing that is a must is to ride the metro. Red Square offers hours of explorer without spending a cent. Within a 10 minute walk you can explore the following besides Red Square: St. Basil, the Theater, GUM, underground mall, souvenir vendors, a walk down Nikolskaya Street and lots more. And of course make a visit for the history that has taken place here.
