World Trip 2006: Day 108 – Moscow, Russia – Red Square

Red Square, site of all those army marches I remember as a child.   Today I got to visit this incredible place which included Lenin’s tomb just outside the Kremlin. It’s hard to take in just how much world history has come from this place.   St Basil Cathedral has to be one of the most famous sites in the world.

An unusual feature of the square is no venders are actually inside it (they are however at the gates).   One of the walls of the square contains a fantastic shopping mall (and that is saying something from me!), Stalin must be rolling in his grave as you can buy all the latest fashions.   I’m not sure how the locals can buy from this place however given the prices. I was part of a tour of Moscow which took in Red Square.   I also got to see other famous sites in Peter the Great statue and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.   This place is amazing; I think I’m falling in love with this city.   Everyone should visit.
