Red Square, first mentioned in the XVth century as merchant place, is the central place of Moscow. In the XVIth century the Intercession Cathedral (also known as the Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed) was erected on Red Square. In the XIXth century the Monument to Minin and Pozharsky was opened here and the State History Museum and Commercial Arcades, known today as GUM (State Department Store), were built. In the XXth century the Lenin Mausoleum was constructed on Red Square as well.
