Located at the heart of Moscow, Red Square offers easy access to most of the city's major attractions. Surrounded by landmark buildings representative of Moscow's rich architectural heritage, the vast square is the first destination for most visitors to the city. Its name comes not from the color of the cobbles or its link to communist history, but from one interpretation of the Russian word "krasniy," meaning "beautiful." Most of the city's major streets originate from this square, but the majority of tourists come to this World Heritage Site to take pictures and visit the surrounding buildings, including a mausoleum housing the embalmed body of Vladimir Lenin. Planning Moscow trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Every time I visit Moscow, and this was the fourth time, there's no chance to miss this sq. It's one of the most famous and beautiful squares in the world. History and stunning architecture interfere.... more »
The square was entertaining, however, the best part of it was the short walk down to the river and eating at a restaurant overlooking the river. Can’t remember the name of it, however, it looked... more »

Warm heart of my hometown. Red square is my favorite place in the city. And word “red” means “beautiful”. Every week I visit it - it’s my tradition. I advice to visit it during early morning (5 am - 10 am) and deep evening (9 pm - 1 am). Only at this time you can feel the magic of Red Square and the breath of history. It’s very powerful and magnificent place so enjoy every moment here. Red walls of Kremlin, elegant St. Basil Cathedral, monumental mausoleum of V.Lenin, luxurious GUM shopping and cultural center and of course grey paving stones of Red Square - all is here. P.S. it’s especially beautiful during winter “New Year” festival.
Just came back from a trip in late January when it had snowed and was around 1° during the day but -6° in the evening. I personally found it very picturesque particularly in the evening when it got dark since the lights of GUM and St Basil's are turned on that complement it. Pretty open so it was windy walking around, recommend a scarf or windproof cagoule. Quick access to the metro and the shops too so during the winter period you can duck into one of them to warm up.
A true Russian Czar style of experience can only be done here. Magnificent! I don't have words beyond it to describe the rich, luxury and beauty of the place. I would say Russia starts from here :-p
Amazing place. Much more interesting that it was expected by be. Definitely must visit place. At day time and night time. Unique looks every where. Have fun
Historical landmark known world wide. In movies and books you see the paved parade ground where the military shows their might during military parades. When you stand on the parade grounds you can imagine being part of the nation while absorbing the surrounding buildings old and new. During the night and day you will experience different views that will make you want to come back in the future and bring some friends.
