Red Square Webcam in Moscow city centre

Temperatures recorded across Russia this summer have already been the highest since records began over 100 years ago, and the heat is taking its toll on a country not used to such extremes of heat.

Temperatures are regularly topping 35 degrees celsius, and this webcam view shows a live view of the impact on the centre of Moscow.

Location information:

Red Square is a city square in Moscow. The square separates the Kremlin, the former royal citadel and currently the official residence of the President of Russia, from a historic merchant quarter known as Kitai-gorod. As major streets of Moscow radiate from here in all directions, being promoted to major highways outside the city, Red Square is often considered the central square of Moscow and all of Russia.
