Seen so many times in media, the red square was much smaller in life, substantially smaller when compared to the Tiananmen Square in Beijing. The Kremlin, the St Basil’s Cathedral and the Gum department store were the three main structures surrounding the Red Square, symbolically...More

Red Square is the place to be. Visit St Basils, The Kremlin and then pop over to GUM department store for lunch. To stand in the middle of red square is a great experience

Beautiful and large; it is the biggest and the best square I have seen. You just can't stop making pictures, if you come at winter night very probably you can take picture alone with Cathedral. Great experience.

Red Square & Kitay-gorod
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
well.
