Red Square, once the site of executions and military parades, sits smack in the middle of Moscow, bounded on one side by the Kremlin walls and Lenin's tomb and on the other by GUM, the country's largest department store.

The famous Red Square did not disappoint. I visited this iconic square at night, which was nice to see the lights. This is a must see during a visit to Moscow. There are some nice restaurant surrounding the Red Square that offer local cuisine.

It's so cool to walk around the cobblestones, to see St. Basil's Cathedral, listen to the chiming clock on the Spassky Tower, take a picture in front of the Historical Museum and to buy ice cream in GUM. A good place for a walk.

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
