Tour Description: Adjacent to the Kremlin, Red Square is located in the very center of Moscow. Known from the early 15th Century, it served as a hub of Moscow’s commerce and social life and was a magnet for crowds of Muscovites and visitors. Red Square witnessed medieval riots, magnificent festivals of the imperial period, and military parades of the Soviet epoch. In a walk around the square you will see the various architectural styles from English Gothic to the New Russian style which paradoxically mixed in a unique and beautiful ensemble. You will travel in time from the 16th century Cathedral of Basil Beatific to the 20th century Mausoleum of Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the Bolsheviks and the founder of the Soviet state.
