The Kremlin and the Red Square are icons of Moscow that have been around for centuries.

The Kremlin is a whole complex of palaces, churches, and other structures, dating back to 1156, though the area was used even earlier than that by the Russian Orthodox Church. St. Basil’s Cathedral is an iconic church sitting on the Red Square just below the Kremlin.

This area has seen centuries of eventful history, from executions back in the 1600’s during Peter the Great’s time, to military parades during the Cold War.

The square is closed to all but foot traffic, so visitors can see and enjoy this beautiful space as it was hundreds of years ago.
