Red Square


Moscow's first suburb, Kitay Gorod, was settled as early as the 12th century by tradesmen and artisans employed by the tsar. The word kitay is thought to refer to the wattle used to build the ramparts around the suburb. Red Square was created as a market square beside the Kremlin in the late 15th century.
