The Russian soldier's memorial at the Kremlin wall is where you'll see marching guards, with lots of tourists with cameras. You may also see wedding parties there. There used to be a tradition of brides dropping flowers there, getting photographed in front of Moscow Univ (good panorama of the city), and going a couple of other places I've forgotten. Catch the stainless steel Yuri Gagarin statue on a sunny day. People gather at a bridge (Bolshchoi Kamennyi?) to watch the Kremlin turn bright red in the sunset. Lots to see, and it's all so foreign!
