Interesting PlacesMoscow Moscow: Interesting Places

Red Square

The Kremlin is certainly the main metropolitan attraction. He is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The red fortress is visible from almost every point in the center of the capital, so getting to it will not be difficult. Familiar from photographs from guidebooks red toothed walls with a length of 2235 meters cover the territory of 27.5 hectares. And although not all of it is open to visitors, for example, the entrance is closed to the presidential residence with a simple mortal. But it is worth allocating to visit the Kremlin with its many museums and architectural attractions built from XIV to the XIX century all day.
Red Square is an arena of many important events of Russian history and the history of the Soviet state, a place of mass demonstrations of the working capital and parades of the Armed Forces of Russia.
Even in ancient times, the area appeared on the eastern wall of the Kremlin, where lively trade was noisy. In the 16th century, it was called Troitskaya from the name of the church of St. Trinity, standing on the site of the Cathedral of Vasily Blessed. In the Middle Ages, fires often blazed here, so the square had another name – “fire”. Since the mid -17th century, it began to be called “red”, which in the Old Russian language meant “beautiful.”
Modern Red Square is a continuous stone, but it acquired this species only in the 19th century, and before that it was mainly wooden. The cobblestone area was completely panted in 1804.
