Red Square remains, as it has been for centuries, the heart and soul of Russia. Few places in the world bear the weight of history to the extent that Moscow's central square does. From the 16th Century St. Basil's Cathedral - one of the most famous pieces of architecture in the world - to the constructivist pyramid of Lenin's Mausoleum, Red Square is rich in symbols of Russia's turbulent and intriguing past.
Red Square is often considered the centre of Moscow, because Moscow's major streets—which connect to Russia's major highways—originate from the square. It was recognized asa UNESCO World Heritage Site, due to its inextricable links to Russian history since the 13th century.
