Trip to Moscow without visiting Revolution Square is incomplete. Iconic buildings and architectures are a must see during your visit to Moscow. Great to visit during summer when lots of people hang out in and around. Lively and lovely!

The Revolutions Square has nothing to do or to remind of the Bolshevik Revolution, which the Russians themselves call today "October Revolt". The Square was completely changed during the Soviet period, and it took another 20 years to bring it back to how it used to look before 1917. So, today this is a fully new-very old place!

This is a place before you enter the Red Square proper and it is very pretty and there is always things going on. Including a spot that represent the zero km where all roads in Russia are measure from that point. Lots of street sellers

Squares, squares, squares,...Around the main and most famous Red Sq there are two more squares close by, the Manezh and this one. I see people here are confused little bit and mixing them. While you'll certainly pass the Revolution Sq on your way to the Red Sq, I would like to point out something you cannot see from the street... More

This square is adjacent to the Red square, connected with it by the Resurection gate. Bustling with activity of tourists and locals alike, this place has unique charm because of monumental buildings wich surrounds it, aswell as this sense of hurry, so common for the cities as big as Moscow.

Just if You proceed from the Red Square ,pass through the Ressurection Gate near the State Historical Museum and turn to the right, that is, to the east, before long You will be on this Revolution Square. After the Red Square and Kremlin, that was the place we most liked to be on. It is located in the center of... More

Everyone goes there so it gets crowded but still nice to visit. The square might get closed if some festive days are coming, be aware of that. The buildings at the square are worth to see.

You can't help but visit here. Big gate, lots of people and a bunch of street vendors selling souvenirs. Some decent places to eat as well - busy day and night.
