Going to Red Square (Moscow) next weekend


Recommended Posts

I'll be visiting Red Square in about 10 days. I've seen some pics of Red Square and the insides of some of the buildings and I think GR portrays them faithfully. There is that building with very long corridors that I have seen in photos.

I get the feeling that I'm going to get goosebumps when I go there. I will be sure to tell my Russian friend that I've whacked many Russian soldiers there before! ;) Especially these days as the relations between our two countries are so warm and friendly. :)

It's definitely going to be an ah-ha moment!

I got back on Sept. 2. Moscow was great! I had a blast. Upon entering Red Square, I was immediately able to orient myself from my recollections from GR...though a lot of it is different. Theres a temporary outdoor "arena" area for performances in the middle of the open area. And that building with the super-long corridors and arches is a mega-mall called GUM.

I took as many photos as I wanted...no problem. I recommend going at night - its even more impressive all lit up.

I would never drive in Moscow. My Russian friend had 4 hours to go from my airport to her airport and she missed plane due to traffic! :S

I actually wanted to go to St. Pete but the connections were so much easier to Moscow.
