Information on the location
Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow since Moscow's major streets, which connect to Russia's major highways, originate from the square.
Starting as a slum, the town was cleared out by Ivan III, and served as a place for public execution. It is also the site of various public ceremonies and proclamations, and occasionally, a coronation for Russia's Tsars would take place.
The buildings surrounding Red Square are all significant infrastructures, including Saint Basil's Cathedral, built under the orders of Ivan the Terrible, Lenin's Mausoleum, and the palaces and cathedrals of the Kremlin.
