The Kremlin at night.

Big but not all that imposing.

Beyond the square is the old KGB building, now renamed but employing teh same people doing similar things. On the roof is a heliport that used to be used to ferry prisoners to Siberia. Russian joke: What is the tallest building in Moscow? The KGB building - you you go to the roof you can see Siberia.

BTW: Red Square was named in the 17th century. It has nothing to do with red but relates to a Russian word meaning beautiful.
