The article presents information about some tourist attractions of Moscow, Russia. No trip to Moscow would be complete without a visit to the city's famed Red Square. The 500,000 square feet area is a place where Russians and tourists alike gather to celebrate official state events and enjoy Russian culture. The most obvious starting point is St. Basil's Cathedral, dominating the cityscape. Boasting several colorful domes, cupolas, arches, towers and spires, each with its own unique design and pattern, the cathedral is worth a stroll around the exterior, before entering its labyrinth-like interior adorned in elaborate frescos. Also worth visiting is Lenin's mausoleum.
