Manezh Square is decorated with beautiful fountains, sculptures and low domes that illuminate the three-level underground shopping center. The central rotating dome symbolizes the Earth. Centuries ago it used to be the site of rag and food markets and in the Soviet times, the area would often be filled with crowds of tanks waiting to enter the Red Square for a military parade. This busy square is surrounded by important buildings, like the Historical Museum fronted by the monument of Marshal Zhukov, the Manege building, today the Central Exhibition Hall, where the most outstanding temporary exhibitions are held, and the Archaeological Museum.
