Owner description: 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.

“Allow lots of time, there is a shopping mall”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was totally surprised that red square contained a very modern day shopping mall as well as St. Basil's. It is a complex of buildings and as in most public places there always plenty of security everywhere.

“Walk in history”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The feeling that you are walking through one of the most important places in world history will simply overwhelm you. Make sure that u click a picture with Russians dresses as Lenin & Stalin outside Red Square.. And, visit red square at night as well. It has a different charm

“Magnificent”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

There are not enough words to describe the feeling when entering this huge square. Everything is spectacular, from the views to the Kremlin, the Lenin's Mauseleum till the new shopping center, all is in harmony. A must see during your stay in Moscow
