“Come on a Saturday to see the Presidential Guard ceremony”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Cathedral Square is the heart of the Kremlin and a perfect spot to get a panorama look at the surrounding cathedrals. It is also the location of the Presidential Guard ceremony which takes place every Saturday at noon during the summer months. Grab a spot by 11:30am in front of the Great Bell Tower for the best view. Lots of perfectly marching soldiers and prancing horses backed by a small band.

“A spirit of Russia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Being in Kremlin is a must. Being in Cathedral Sq. in Kremlin is a must 2. Moscow has become too international. Not so many traditional places, churches, historical monuments where you can enjoy the spirit. The Square is really one of such places. No matter Orthodox, Protestant or Catholic you are, you'll be impressed.

“Just breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stand in the middle and turn around for a bit, marvel at the blue sky, golden domes and white walls of the churches. It's beautiful. Visit all the churches while you're here, they are worth it.

“You can't see Moscow without visiting the Kremlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

It goes without saying really, that you can't visit Moscow without visiting the Kremlin and this square is at the heart of the Kremlin. A collection of old and very striking Russian churches.
