Cathedral Square or Sobornaya Square is the central square of the Moscow Kremlin where all of its streets used to converge in the 15th century.  The square owes its name to the three cathedrals facing it, Cathedral of the Assumption, Cathedral of the Archangel, and Cathedral of the Annunciation.  Apart from these, the Palace of Facets, the Church of the Deposition of the Robe and the Church of the Twelve Apostles are placed there.  The tallest structure on the square is Ivan the Great Bell Tower, which also separates Sobornaya Square from Ivanovskaya Square.  The Cathedral Square is famous as the site of solemn coronation and funeral processions of all the Russian tsars, patriarchs, and Grand Dukes of Moscow.  The square is used in the inauguration ceremony of the President of Russia.  The square is also the scene of the daily changing of the Horse Guards.  Occasionally, operas (such as Boris Godunov) are performed here as well.
