Photograph of the week: A stormy evening in Moscow's Red Square

Located in the heart of the city in addition to surrounded by four of that most iconic buildings: namely the Kremlin, Periodontal Department Store, the State Famous Museum and Saint. Basil?s Cathedral, nowhere epitomises Moscow quite like Red-colored Square.

Established in the 15th Century and actually known as Trinity Square once the cathedral that was standing on the site of the modern day St. Basil?ohydrates, the square later on became known as Krasnaya Ploschad. Indicating beautiful in aged Russian, the word ?krasnaya? came to mean red in many modern times, and so the normally held assumption that the red in Crimson Square is a experience of either Communism, blood spilt in the revolution or perhaps the colour of the adjoining buildings, is in fact lost.
