Really like going to the Red square every time I travel back to Russia. There is a lot of tourists, but the territory of the place is so big. There is the GUM Shopping Department, St Basil's Cathedral. Love taking pictures there.

After years of seeing this iconic landmark on the television it was an absolute life changing moment to actually see it in person. As we are staying quite close we have also seen it under lights. Equally wonderful.

Be careful of the cleaning trucks while you admire the buildings around here. They sometimes drive insanely fast. Apart from that, this is one of the places you should come to on your trip to Moscow because it is where many of the town's attractions...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
