Flight Over The Red Square

Flight Over The Red Square

When Lenin's Mausoleum (Lenin's Tomb) is open they cordon off the whole Red Square to secure the main square of Russia, so-called by citizens "The Heart Of Russia" from 10 am to 1 pm (open hours of Lenin's mausoleum). From the times of USSR any flights (planes or helicopters) are forbidden over Moscow city (only by special occasions with permission of Ministry of Air Force Defense) and only a bird can pass so many restrictions and make the free-fly over The Red Square.

Since the time of Ivan III(15th century), the square has been the scene of great public events, mainly political - rallies, demonstrations, and processions. In earlier times, The Red Square was also a place of execution. In the second half of 20th century, in the time of "cold war", the Red Sqaure was famous to the World with military parades which were provided every year by Communist Party to show the might of USSR.

On this picture you can see the view on the famous St. Basil's cathedral and the most remarkable tower of Moscow Kremlin - Savior's Tower from the right side of State Historical Museum.

Just returned from a wonderful trip in russia, arthur was a great guide and helped us to learn a great deal about the people and history of the country.

Arthur was a great asset to our trip, we learned a great deal of the people and history,he's a wonderful guide and worked the schedule for us with the time we had available. In three days we were able to see the most important sites, including sergio p, the monastery outside of moscow. If I can help a fellow traveler get a better idea of what to expect,just ask arthur for my email and I will be glad to give you any additional information you may need. I know we were able to see as much as we did because of Arthur's help.
