More about the Red Square

The Red Square, at Moscow’s core, symbolizes Russia’s rich historical and architectural heritage. Dating back to the 15th century, it hosts architectural gems like the iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Kremlin walls. The square, also housing Vladimir Lenin’s mausoleum and the State Historical Museum, reflects Russia’s extensive historical narrative. Its name, Red Square (Russian: Krasnaya ploshchad), originates from the Russian word ‘krasnaya’, meaning ‘beautiful’, underscoring its enduring significance and architectural allure in Russia’s identity.
