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.

Is not as big as i expected but surely is a place that you must visit once in Moscow. Brings much of their history to our minds.

Funny, it appears that GUM now is the main attraction here – all lit-up at night! The Kremlin wall and towers go obscure, the Mausoleum is hardly seen, St. Basil’s Cathedral is heavily overshadowed by the modern hotel on the other side of the river…...More

Honestly disappointed. Every year on 9th of May there is live on tv and what I’ve seen compared to the reality is much different. Not so big and bright. Just surrounded by many historical buildings.

Coming to Moscow cannot be completed without a visit to The Red Square. A lot of monuments within the a short distance and can easily take up half a day.. Tickets to Kremlin start at 9:30 and open for public entry at 10

When being on a sight-seeing trip to Moscow, you cannot afford not going to the Red Square. This is a beautiful square and really impressive. When you have a chance, try to go in the evening hours as the lights make this square even more...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
well.
