Had the opportunity to visit in the month of March. I was expecting to be busier but thankfully it wasn’t. It’s a place full of energy and Russian energy. I had an amazing tour guide who made the experience even better. Highly recommend it.

It’s a lot to see as you walk around, a lot of history and it’s also very unique. It is by far one the most photographed places in Moscow. This was really cool to finally see.
