Red Square, Moscow (Russia)

The Red Square of Moscow is the lifeline of the city, and the whole country. This is the very center and heart of Moscow, from where all of the city’s important streets spread out like a spider’s web into various ring roads and highways. Red Square separates the former royal citadel and current resident of the Russian president Kremlin, and the historic merchant quarter Kitai-Gorod. At present, it is the ground zero for all the major concerts, events and festive gatherings in Moscow. But the history of the square is quite different.

History Of Red Square

The Red Square of Moscow, Russia has a history as colorful as its surroundings. At its earliest, it was home to various slum dwellings. It was cleared out around 1400 under Tsar Ivan III, but it continued to be a very unstable location till late 20th century. It was once known as the Fire Square as well, because of the multiple times that the medieval Moscow burned down owing to the many battles fought. A cannon stood ready at all times during the 16th-17th century Mongol-Tatar invasions to defend the square and the city.

Significance Of Red Square

In the 20th century, Red Square came into its own. It became popular because of the numerous army parades that were hosted. The two most popular ones being the one on November 7, 1941, when young cadets marched straight through Red Square to the Second World War frontline to defend Moscow from Nazi Invasions. Another one was the victory parade on June 24, 1945, which was very much written with the blood of 200 Nazi soldiers who were thrown onto the square.

Attractions Of Red Square

Even with its shady and bloody history, Red Square today is home to some of the most-frequented attractions. Among Moscow buildings in Red Square are the famous St Basil’s Cathedral, the Spasskaya Tower and Kremlin Wall, the Kazan Cathedral, the historic mall GUM, State Historical Museum and the utmost revered, Lenin Museum.

      Since last 10 years it’s very first time that I availed customized travel services from an Indian tour operator. And my experience is very good. They fulfilled each commitment. And best part was that SUMIT was always in communication mode, instead of time difference. Their support while my flight was cancelled by airline, appreciable. I wish Sumit & Shyne all the best & thanks a lot. Each moment & destination was awesome.Russia is a fantastic destination/depends upon your taste. I gained a lifetime memory with my family.

    FAQ's of Moscow

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The Red Square in Russia is called so because of the importance of the color red in the country. This color is used as a symbol of communism. The Bolsheviks, a major political party in Russia appropriated this color to symbolize the blood of the workers and the red flag of the Soviet Union. Also, during the revolution, the Red Army (Bolshevik forces) fought the White Army (loyalists to the czar). All this history brought such a name to this famous place in Moscow, Russia.

    Summertime is ideal to explore the Red Square properly, because in winter it is more or less covered in snow, like most other places in Russia.

    St Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin Mausoleum and the Kremlin Wall are the most popular attractions on the Red Square. But there are many other buildings, towers, and museums to explore.

    GUM is the famous shopping destination of Moscow, which is located on the Red Square. It is the State Department Store, which houses many high street brands from all around the world as well as local names.
