Fun Facts from our Moscow tours
  • Red Square is a result of large fire in fifteenth century that destroyed the spot and it was decided not to build it back
  • The oldest building in Moscow is Assumption Cathedral (built in 1474-1479)
  • It\'s a known fact that Lobnoye Mesto is the place for executions, however it was really rare because it was considered sacred and made for royal decrees.
  • The Tsar Cannon was never actually used in any war conflicts
  • For about 100 years the Tsar Bell was in a pit
  • The sculptor who created the Minin and Pozharsky monument used his sons as models for it
  • The Minin and Pozharsky monument was initially located in the very center of Red Square, until in 1931 it was moved closer to St. Basil\'s Cathedral
