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.

The square is huge and the buildings are very beautiful. There are many places to take pictures. There is a huge shop worth visiting and the mausoleum of Lenin (check visiting hours).

One of the most important and famous tourisitic place, also historical! Very impressive during the evening time when all lights is turning on! Very good view from nearest bridges and from the road on the other side of Moscow river. Must see!

Walked end to end twice. Large but not as large as I had imagined from seeing images of the May Day Military parades. This is one place not o be missed.

Have been many times, in different years, and always been amazed by how it well preserved. However the best time to visit in my opinion is of course May, especially first decade.

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of

Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
