You are in for a treat - inside are 18 pictures taken at the square this July.
Apparently, there is not much to see inside either - it's dimly lit, it's small. And because the line is supposed to be constantly moving, there is very little time to slow down, look at the glass coffin and maybe reflect on the historical importance of the man inside.
According to a Russian superstition, if you like the place and want to come back, you need to leave something there, something you own - most often a coin. So nonchalant tourists throw coins at the plaque and babushkas rush in to pick them up. Some are real pros at it - swinging a magnet attached to a string to avoid bending down. Once in a while they would get into a heated quarrel over who was there first. It's a sad sight if you ask me because it speaks to the state of seniors in Russia.
1. The best time to enjoy the square is early mornings - because that's when it's almost empty. But for different lighting conditions (and better pictures in front of Saint Basil's) you should also come back in the afternoon.
2. All of the places - Saint Basil's Cathedral, the museum and the Kremlin - accept valid student cards and offer great deals - at least 50% off admission!
