Iconic landmark

You can't help but visit here. Big gate, lots of people and a bunch of street vendors selling souvenirs. Some decent places to eat as well - busy day and night.

You should walk around this square because in any corner you can find historical and artitectural attraction. Also you can make different panoramic photos from different views. I was amazed bt Bolshoy theatre and a fountain infront of it.

You will inevitable pass through this square when in the vicinity of the Kremlin. Beautiful architecture surrounds it and it is always busy with people. You will also find beggars and entertainers here.

This is iconic of Moscow, but what really struck me was the sheer size of the place and the fabulous architecture. Then when I discovered it encompassed the first Moscow, it made perfect sense.

Born in a communist country Vietnam and learn a lot about Russia and the Xo Viet Union. It is really wonderfully feeling to visit the Red Square. The place is very impressive, but the only one thing i make me laugh is the MacDonald just right in the the area. Really like the place then.
