Tour of Red Square for foreigners
Acquaintance with Moscow cannot do without a tour of Red Square for foreigners. The Kremlin with its star-turrets, the Spasskaya Tower and the chiming clock, the Main Department Store of Russia, St. Basil’s Cathedral – there is nothing here! That is why every guest of the capital must definitely go on a tour of Red Square for foreigners.
Red Square for foreigners is not only the heart of Moscow, but also a historically important place. It begins its history in the XII century. What Red Square did not see: tsars, emperors, boyars, peasants, nobles. In the 16th century, Execution Ground appeared on the square – a small platform. At the Execution Ground, important decrees and orders were read out, executions were sometimes carried out next to it to intimidate the people – so that it was disrespectful to break the laws. And then the square got the name “Fire”, because it burned repeatedly.
St. Basil’s Cathedral is of great importance for foreigners and residents of the capital. This architectural monument was built in the 16th century, and still attracts the eyes of visitors surprised by its beauty. As part of the tour, you will be told about the temple, given time for photography and questions to the guide.

Red Square is the perfect place to make a wish. It is on it that the zero kilometer is located – a sculpture by Ivan Rukavishnikov. In order for the wish to come true, it is important to follow the formalities: stand on one leg in the center of the zero kilometer so that your back is to the Iberian chapel, take a coin in your left hand and throw it over your left shoulder. When throwing – make a wish. They say it will surely come true.
Red Square is extraordinarily beautiful in winter – it is decorated with thousands of garlands and Christmas balls. She herself seems to be a bright New Year’s toy – so her lights shimmer in the evening. An ice rink is installed in the center of the square, which anyone can visit. There is also a skate rental. Soviet songs are played at the skating rink, everyone is in the most festive mood and it seems as if they traveled in a time machine and ended up in the past. After skiing, you can treat yourself to hot tea or mulled wine.
