The historical Revolution Square/Ploshchad Revolyutsii (Площадь Революции) is a popular and nice place (very close to the Red Square). It's easy to find it since is just aside of another famous landmarks like Manezhnaya Square/Manezhnaya ploshchad (Манежная площадь) and the Nikolskaya Street (Никольская улица)). Easy to reach it by any public transportation. This is a very busy and lively spot.... More

This is located right in front of a Metro station and is next to the red square. Love the way it has been decorated for the New Year.

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!

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.
