Really?? This is the childhood dream of many of us. We have seen many symbols of the world as children
But if you want to scream with joy when you see a symbol of a country, it's the Red Church.

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

This square is one of the most wonderful destinations in Moscow and maybe in the whole of Europe. The vast square with the cerimlin of Russia, the church and the Lenin tomb. Also you can enjoy the nice restaurants and cafes in the square.

Red Square is considered to be the central square of Moscow as Moscow's major streets originate from the square.

Red Square, is located beneath the east wall of Kremlin and towards the south end is the Cathedral of St Basil the Blessed. The construction of Red Square was finished by the late 19th century.
In 1929, Lenin’s Mausoleum was finished.

The name Red Square does not have any link to communism or with the colour of many of its buildings. The square is the site of various public ceremonies and proclamations including few coronations for Russia's Tsars. It was also the top spot for high-profile executions such as those of the Cossack rebel Stepan Razin in 1671 and the Streltsy (Peter the Great’s mutinous palace guard) in 1698.

Red Square is closed to traffic. The Kremlin towers and St Basil’s domes, illuminated by floodlights and set against the night sky, create a spectacular panorama.

I was there in January, right after the New Year night, diving into its never-ending razzle-dazzles. Now that there are not so many Western tourists there it looks even more authentic, even more Russian, even more Imperial.
Crowds of smiling people, numerous food stalls, a huge, intricately illuminated skating rink. And Kremlin towers - elegant, solemn, stern, crowned with red stars.
One must be a Russian to understand this enigmatic spell-binding country and what the Red Square means to us. A Russian not by blood but by spirit - there are more than 190 nationalities and ethnic groups living here and we all proudly call ourselves Russian when we talk to aliens.
I love you, my Red Square. My eternal and ever-young superbeauty!
