Red Square, once the site of executions and military parades, sits smack in the middle of Moscow, bounded on one side by the Kremlin walls and Lenin's tomb and on the other by GUM, the country's largest department store.

The iconic red square conjures up many images of the Soviet times. Great place to visit. Spend time just 'being' in the Red Square. Lenin mausoleum was not open.

This square is something you only see in movies or documentaries. So much history are embedded in the cobble stones that give ground to the red square. If you like history the red square, among many other places, is simply a must when visiting Moscow!...More

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
well.
