“Beautiful at night!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Even though it's just a square, it's absolutely stunning at night! I visited on a warm summer night and took some amazing photographs of the unique architecture. Recommended!

“Has to be done”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Worth the trip especially if you are interested in photography and history. Gum shopping centre is worth a visit as they have an exhibition of how the people of Moscow developed it into a shopping mall.

“Large”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Unless there is an event on, not much to see and always packed on a weekend .... Some good pubs at the back of it though

“Amazing, a must for any traveller.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Red square is free to enter as it is a public place, however when I visited they were erecting a large stage in the center of the square which kind of ruined the view - must have been for a concert. That aside, it's a must to see and is unique - it is what people think of when Russia is mentioned. The skyline from red square is stunning and St Basil Cathedral, Lenin Mausoleum, State History Museum, Gum and Kremlin wall can all be seen.
