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.

One of beautiful place which should see in mosvow. You should have powerful feet to walk trough this square. Many restaurants are next to thus place and metro station is also available. The sun is powerful. Don't forget to get an umberella.

Red Square has all the things that I have seen or read about in movies and thrillers from my school days. And actually being there was a tremendous experience. St. Basil's Cathedral, The Kremlin, GUM, Lady of Kazan church. Wow!!

As pretty much the mental image of Moscow you do need to visit Red Square along with all of the other million tourists (and lots of Russians coming to Moscow). Red Square is huge but easy to get around. Go early and avoid the masses....More

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
