The square is crowded with visitors and yet it is still exactly as all pictures show. It is an iconic place. Make sure you wander around to the back of the square to the gardens and the eternal flame

A visit to Moscow is not complete if you haven't been to the Red Square. Best is when there are no concerts etc.(and the square is not occupied); then you can come there during the early hours of the morning with a hot cup of...More

One can’t go to Moscow without visiting Red Square. The glowing St Basils Cathedral makes it picture perfect. The buildings surrounding it are all historically important. The only thing that would have made it prettier would have been snow!

A very intriguing visit with the GUM,St. Basil’s and the Kremlin. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate the history and majesty of this square.

I like this spot. Best way is to go there in the evening or in the early morning, if you want to take pictures without many people.

Red Square is magnificent by day (although as you’d expect, also full of tourists) but truly breath-taking at night. It’s at night when most of the tourists have left that that Red Square becomes almost mystical. You get a strong sense of history in the...More

The highlight of a group trip to Moscow in November 2016. Should be the first and last stop of any trip to Moscow to soak in the majesty of one of the world's best capital cities.

This is a very impressive square surrounded by grand and varying buildings/monuments. While one side of the square is dominated by the Kremlin, the other side is occupied by elegant GUM mall. The remaining sides have churches/cathedral. This is the very heart of Moscow and...More

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
