It's That Time of Year! Red Square's Christmas Market

With around a month to go until the New Year, Moscow has put on its festive attire. 

Among the most popular Christmas markets in the capital is the annual market on Red Square, in front of the GUM department store. Open from Nov. 30 to Feb. 28, it includes 45 kiosks selling Christmas decorations, souvenirs and Russian delicacies. There is also a skating rink, with room for 450 people at once. 

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
