There is no way around the Red Square and the bordering Kremlin. The center of Russia's capital is a magnet for tourists and one of the most iconic squares in the world. As many people assume, the name Red Square does not originate from the pigment of the surrounding bricks nor from the link between the color red and communism. The Russian word "Krasnaya" (The name of the square is Krasnaya Ploshchad) can be translated to either "beautiful" or "red".
St. Basil's Cathedral
The first thing you'll probably notice after entering the Red Square is the beautifully colored onion domes of the Basil Cathedral, and a magical view of one of the most famous landmarks in Russia. But it's interesting to know that the bright colors were only added 200 years later to its exterior walls. Another funny note is that the former dictator Josef Stalin wasn't really happy about how the location of the church blocked the entrance to the Red Square for his mass demonstrations, so he considered demolishing the cathedral. Luckily, someone made him change his mind.
Had an official city tour of the city which covered all the famous landmarks and had a few pitstops for pictures. Got a first glimpse of the famous Red Square. After the tour got down at GUM - the biggest shopping mall of Russia. Went into the St. Basil's Cathedral to get an insight into the history of the beautiful landmark. Visited the Vodka Musuem which has exclusive architecture and a delightful flea market alongside.
