Create an itinerary including Red Square
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.

  • An amazing place to enjoy a walk. During winter there is a market to do shopping and warm wine. The place is amazing at night and pictures are just amazing. Daytime is good for walking and visiting. Wear warm clothing, hat and gloves. Walks are exhausting but amazing.
  • I found such a great number of interesting monuments and buildings. The Kremlin is situated here at an arms length you can find the beautiful St. Basil cathedral and in the same perimeter the fanciful GUM stores with some very fine dining and the best of international retail.
