Splendid square, so harmonious and nice. The huge 600 tons granite column at the center is the masterpiece and same as the gate on the opposite side they celebrate the victory of Russia against Napoleon in 1812.

Three rooms of Degas, four rooms of Picasso and five rooms of Matisse. Need I say more? Every major Impressionist is here and entry is free if you bought a ticket to the Hermitage across the square. Best gallery in Moscow.
