If you visit Moscow you really need to visit Red Square. With perfect views of the Kremlin and St Basils cathedral and next to the famous GUM shopping mall.

We actually had no idea what to expect even though it is widely photographed, painted, in movies and especially books. Once you put its violent history aside, it is a vast peaceful city center with the Kremlin, Lenin's mausoleum, the stunning one of a kind...More
