The Red Squareis the main square of Moscow, by the Kremlin's walls. In the 20th century it was a venue for workers' and military parades, for sumptuous funerals - including the ones of the founder of Soviet Union. Vladimir Lenin's embalmed body can still be seen in the Mausoleum on the Red Square. A colorful multi-dome St. Basil’s Cathedral at another side of the square dates back to the times of Ivan the Terrible - the 1500s. An elegant GUM shopping mall under a glass roof still preserves the atmosphere of the late 19th century.
