Experience a part of Russian history in Red Square
Red Square has been important to the Russian people for hundreds of years. It first served as an encampment outside of the Kremlin
, which borders Red Square, but soon developed into a central marketplace for the city after Ivan III removed the shantytown from the area. Throughout its time as a marketplace, many celebrations occurred in Red Square.
The area surrounding Red Square continued to develop, with new, inspiring buildings such as St Basil's Cathedral and the GUM Department Store opening over time. Today, Red Square continues to be a vital part in the lives of Muscovites, but also an important place in the Russian consciousness. The square has seen everything from the pomp of military processions to rock concerts from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Paul McCartney in recent years.
