Beautiful Square surrounded by churches. Went on a bright, sunny day as one among hoards of people. The experience would have been more enjoyable if it was less crowded. Perhaps early in the day would have been better.

You absolutely have to see this, if you go to Moscow. It IS Moscow, and it's breathtaking. We were so lucky to be there for the fireworks! Unbelievable!

This lovely square in the Kremlin is surrounded by 3 churches and the Palace. Be careful walking on the cobblestones, watch out for the crowds and for pick pockets.

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

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
