Red Square - Resurrection Gate, Moscow: 14 reviews and 20 photos
As we were staying at the Hotel Moskva, our usual entrance to Red Square was through the Resurrection Gate.
The original gate was erected in 1680, but it was demolished in 1931. The re-creation that stands today was built as recently as 1995. The gate is quite pretty and it merits returning to this area of the city after dark, as it will be lit up, creating an even more attractive scene.
If you haven't run out of energy and interest in churches at this point, there is yet another chapel inside the gateway. Keep in mind though that this area attracts a regular group of beggars (older women) in front of the doorway.
Address: Between Rd Square and Ploshchad Revolutsii
