Where do I learn more about the Russia e-Visa for Citizens of the Philippines?
Russia is famous for several things: it is the largest country in the world, its iconic capital city (Moscow), it has Saint Petersburg, Orthodox churches, huge museums, ballet, and beautiful nature.
We cannot talk about Russia without mentioning Red Square. This is the most famous square in Moscow in the commercial district known as Kitay-górod. This square is 330 meters long and 70 meters wide, adding up to a total area of 23,100 m². The most accurate translation of its name would be "Beautiful Square", which in Cyrillic translates as "красная". This word means “beautiful” but also “red”. Since then, it has been more often known as "the Red Square" rather than Beautiful Square (although it is clearly a beauty.)
The Red Square was included, along with the whole of the Kremlin, in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1990. This square separates the Kremlin, the royal fortress where the President of Russia currently resides, from the historic commercial district of Kitay -górod. That is why the square is considered the center of the city and all of Russia.
