Red Square & Kremlin Area in Moscow, Russia

​Both are the must as they are the postcards of the city, but really there’s no need to spend too much time there. The interesting thing about the whole place is that it also serves as the graveyard for the party functionaries who are laid neatly in a row just below the Kremlin wall. And, of course, Lenin’s mausoleum where he’s lying calmly in a dim-lit red sarcophagus (which you should see before they bury the old man). Kremlin is opened for visits daily 10.00 to 17.00 except Thursday.
