Red Square, {CATEGORY}

One of the world's most recognizable public spaces, Red Square is as impressive in reality as it is on-screen. Its uneven surface leads to a rounded peak at the center, from which Moscow unfurls on all sides. The square was already famous by 1434, when it was dubbed "Trading Square". Its current name appeared in the 1660s, when the word krasnaya meant "beautiful" or "important" as well as "red". The name took on different connotations in the 20th century, when the red flag-bearing Communists staged massive parades and demonstrations on the aptly titled square. Tanks no longer roll over its cobblestones on Soviet holidays, but the square still hosts big parades and the occasional rock concert. The best way to enter is through Resurrection Gates, next to the History Museum. Before heading to St. Basil's Cathedral, note the other two churches on the square: Kazan Cathedral in the northeast corner (a 1990s reproduction of a 17th-c. church), and the new and rather kitschy Gate Church of the Iberian Virgin beneath Resurrection Gates. Watching the sun rise or set over the landmark square is unforgettable, especially during the long days of summer.
