    What's this area in Red Square called?

    Right by Saint Basil's Cathedral there is a circular cement area where people throw coins and make wishes. I was told they used to execute people there in Tsarist times. Does this monument(?) have a name?

    К слову, не любит почему-то BBCode ссылки, содержащие кириллические символы. Пришлось использовать нормальный HTML, чтобы ссылка заработала.
