“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

We enjoyed our visit to Red Square very much! It is so beautiful to see the red Kremlin wall contrasting with the yellow wall of the Kremlin. There is plenty of room to have fun taking photos in front of St Basil's Cathedral! Just plan on wandering around and getting lots of pictures and then pick and choose which places you want to go inside or go inside them all! You won't be disappointed!

Wow! A must see. Sorry that Lenin's Mausoleum was closed both days spent at Red Square. Will definitely return.

“Wonderful”

Was there during my last business trip to Russia and managed to visit this place too.
Really a wonderful spot! I had only one evening free and my friend Sasa was kind enough to take me to this place.
