Very near the metro with a statue of Marx Conner eating the revolution. Not very large but can get crowded at times. Perhaps not a destination location but worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood.

This is a beautiful open square next to Red square. During our visit, there was a local fair there, so we were able to enjoy a small market and some folklore performances.

An open square where you can feel the euphoria of the city center. It is a place were you can be all afternoon and you will never feel the time passing. I love everything in Moscow.

This is a fairly large open space located closed to Red Square and easily accessible from the metro station of the same name. When I visited in mid October it looked like some work was under way to get it ready for a Christmas market....More

Starting point of any visit to Moscow of course. Stunning buildings, among which the shopping mall GUM. View on the Kremlin. Yet used for all sorts of events which ruins the overall view. And extremely tourist packed. Police controls at entrance.

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
