“Obviously amazing.”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

I cant imagine anyone putting the effort in to look at Trip advisor doesnt have this on their list of places to go anyway, but it doesnt dissapoint.St Basils takes your breathe away and still one of the most beautiful buoldings I have ever seen, You get a real feel for the history that must have taken place in the square.

“You Must Not Miss Red Square”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Anyone who grew up during the Cold War cannot miss a visit to Red Square. You will recognize everything from St. Basil's to Lenin's tomb. There is so much history here, one could literally spend days in Red Square. The least crowded time is the winter months at night. Dress warm and to to Red Square while the snow is falling. You will be glad that you did.

“fantastic beyond belief”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Great atmosphere, seeing the tomb of Lenin was mind blowing. They need to move the awful ice rink to give back the atmosphere

“Touch a piece of history.”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

So often in photos and the news, it is an incredible feeling to stand in red square. A must see in Moscow. Lenin's tomb, St. Basil's, the Kremlin wall, and many other things can all be seen. Even though it was cold we saw many cold, shivering but smiling brides having their wedding photos taken. A great memory.

“ice skating”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Beautiful at night yet the huge Disney-like ice skating rink in the center detracted from the view. I can imagine how nice it might be without this. Did not go during daylight.
