On the bridge across the Moscow River installed metal trees. Newlyweds come here on their wedding day, that would hang the door. The keys are thrown into the river. Triss said that one of the trees hanging castle, which she hung from her husband, but look for it, we did not.
Then we went to the Red Square. Red - means beautiful. To the west of it is the Moscow Kremlin, to the east - Upper (GUM) and the average shopping mall, to the north - the Historical Museum and the Kazan Cathedral, to the south - Cathedral of the Intercession (St. Basil).
