Moscow is the capital of the world's biggest
country, situated in the centre of the European part of Russia. At
the very heart of the city, and indeed the country, is the Kremlin,
the Russian place of command for almost eight centuries, and the
religious centre. Red Square and the exquisite, colourful domes of
Saint Basil's Cathedral, and the jewelled, Fabergť Easter eggs of
the Tsars are images that have long been associated with the Soviet
Union in the minds of Westerners.
Red Square Moscow
Red Square is a dramatic open cobbled space
in the centre of Moscow, originally the city's market place that
served as a public gathering place to celebrate festivals, listen
to government announcements or to witness executions, especially
common during the reign of Ivan the Terrible.
St Basil's Cathedral Moscow
St Basil's Cathedral with its multicoloured
domes is the most famous image of Russia, standing on the edge of
Moscow's Red Square, a striking design that was commissioned by
Ivan the Terrible to commemorate his victorious military campaign
against the Tartar Mongols at Kazan in 1552.
