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.

Generally interesting square to walk but some parts of this place could be tacky and very touristy. Evening time much better to walk around

Pretty square to walk through, either on the way or way back from the more famous Red Square. Plenty of diverse architecture to admire, yet another pretty square in Moscow!

The Revolution Square is the passageway leading to Red Square. There are many nice structures and statue around. The place will be crowded with people both day and night and often used as the assembly point for tourist groups.

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
