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
The famous Red Square is beautiful, visited it at night so the lighting make it much more beautiful, if visit in winter I’m sure the place will look much much more beautiful. There are nice shops in the square too. It is very easy to...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!
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

There is a military Museum in St Petersburg that spans both world wars and the Cold War. That would be a good start. I would not recommend the cold war bunker in Moscow, I know that is not what you asked, but you might consider it. There are some land marks that depict how close the Germans got to St. Petersburg, but given both Major cities were not taken, there are not many sites about battlefield s, Unlike Berlin where we are now. Good luck
