One of the most famous and historical sites in the world. If you come to Moscow you have to visit Red Square. Come during the day and come again at night if you can.... The Kremlin, GUM, St Basils....

Having seen the red square so many times on tv I expected it to be much larger than it is. Basically its just a square where you can go for a walk and look around nothing fantastic

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
