Red Square is the first place that  tourists usually want to visit in Moscow. Actually, it is one of the most beautiful and important squares in the world. The word “Red” means beautiful in old Russian and has nothing to do with the colour of the Kremlin walls. Originally there was a market here and a lot of different trading rows. Now some very important monuments are located in Red square (St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Lenin Mausoleum, the State Historical Museum, GUM and Kazan Cathedral)

 Many important ceremonies and events take place here. For example, 9 May military parades, rock concerts (Shakira, Paul McCartney and  the Scorpions have already performed here), ice skating and a Christmas  market in winter time where all the guests can experience Russian hospitality and try traditional Russian food and drinks.
