Unesco listed the Red SqareIn fact the square's name derives from the word 'krasnyi', which once meant 'beautiful'. The varied beauty of the architecture and the magical atmosphere belie the square's often brutal and bloody history, but the combination makes Red Square a truly fascinating place that you'll want to come back to again and again.

In Moscow, the Cathedral of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God, better known as the Cathedral of St. Vasily the Blessed (or St. Basil’s Cathedral, as it is often called in English), standing in Red Square is such a landmark. Can you believe that the cathedral’s original color was said to be white to match the white stone of the Kremlin? You will know much more amazing fact about history of the cathedral by the end of the tour.
