Red Square

Highly recommended
Walking on legendary Red Square is your first key step in visiting Moscow. This "Beautiful Square" - krasnaya means both "red" and "beautiful" - was built in the late 15C during the reign of Ivan III the Great. Its history has always been connected with demonstrations of government power, from the crowning of the tsars to Soviet military parades. The awesome 360° panorama takes in the Kremlin's red walls, the white façade of the GUM shopping centre, and the sparkling onion domes of the Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed.
