Moscow is one of the best city for a perfect tourist destination. Moscow, the political, historical, architectural and business center of Russia, shows the most extreme contrasts in the country. The best time to visit Moscow is April and May.
Red Square is an amazing place to visit and an important point on the tourist map in Moscow. “Red” meant “beautiful” in contemporary Russian.
The architecture within Red Square is stunning. You may have excellent photos for your memories. You can visit Kremlin, Saint Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, State Historical Museum and GUM Department store. The architecture of all the buildings is amazing.
It is close to the subway and many shopping centers. You can get to the Red Square by metro. The nearest station is “Okhotny Ryad” (Охотный Ряд), located about 300 meters away.
Saint Basil’s Cathedral
This fascinating cathedral on Red Square was built by “Ivan the Terrible” in the 1550s. One of the most famous symbols of Moscow and most famous churches in the world. Saint Basil’s Cathedral is the landmark of Moscow. You will see Saint Basil’s Cathedral as you approach Red Square.
You will be surprised inside. It is not carried out as a church, but has nine different chapels in style and size, connected by corridors and passageways. Very strange structure and beautiful appearance. The colorful and picturesque cathedral indeed consists of a number of smaller churches that are beautiful and very interesting to see. Built so nice, look great, inside is nice, nice to spend time in the area, as there are many other things to see in the Red Square.
During the day, St. Basil’s Cathedral is also beautiful, but incredibly crowded. If you want to take photos without tourists, we recommend that you visit it at night.
Entrance fee is 15€.
