Red Square … THE Red Square, Moscow [Russia]

If ever a city has the prime sites concentrated in one area, I think it is Moscow and Red Square. During peak times, it is a sea of humanity, with folks from all over the World. And when it is sunny, St. Basil’s is just a magnificent sight. I would recommend that one arrives as early as one can, as the crowds increase through the day.
