Architecturally, the Red Square and Kremlin are the most amazing things I've ever seen. Walking around in December felt like being a fairy tale -- well, one where most of the characters were about to succumb to hyperthermia. But at any time of year, it is impossible not to marvel at these historic and important buildings -- many which host museums filled with equally impressive collections of Russian art and historical displays. Especially photogenic was St. Basil's.

The heart of the city of Moscow, the Kremlin (the walled citadel that houses the President's residence) and the Red Square directly to its east are, to put none-too-fine a point on it, incredibly cool. Roads leading outward into Moscow and the rest of Russia radiate from this central point, which houses not only the Kremlin, but the famous St. Basil's Cathedral, GUM department store, Lenin's tomb, and the State Historical Museum. It's beautiful and almost embarrassingly rich in history, and its environs are THE place to stay in central Moscow.

Red Square remains, as it has been for centuries, the heart and soul of Russia. Few places in the world bear the weight of history to the extent that Moscow's central square does. From the 16th Century St. Basil's Cathedral - one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world - to the constructivist pyramid of Lenin's Mausoleum, Red Square is rich in symbols of Russia's turbulent and intriguing past.

History is made here. History has always been made here. If you can stand in the middle of Red Square and not feel like you've been someplace really special, then I don't know what to tell you. Stand in the middle of the square. You have Lenin's Tomb and the Kremlin on one side. You have St. Basil's Cathedral on another side. A cathedral on yet another side. The GUM is on the last side. It's a place where people have died and revolutions have been born. It's on of the most special spots in the world.

Red Square is the area in front of the Moscow Kremlin that was cleared out by Ivan III. He removed all the houses in this area, and turned it into the business district. Red Square is where the Tsar would make proclamations to the Russian people. It was also a place of celebrations and executions (Peter the Great had the Streltsy executed in the square, some of them Peter chopped the heads off himself).

Red Square and the Kremlin are the 'it' places to go as a tourist if you want to find yourself some history in Moscow. The buildings live up to expectations (at least mine) by being semi-interesting and somewhat over the top (especially inside the Armory). Walk around (so long as the cold isn't biting) and check out the building exteriors - it's the best part.
