Stroll among colorful flower beds and impressive historical monuments at Aleksandrovskiy Sad, which stretches along the Kremlin's western wall. Tsar Alexander I ordered the reconstruction of the city after the Napoleonic Wars, with the addition of a new garden. The cast-iron entry gate and grille in the shape of fasces (wooden rods with ax blades) symbolize the Russian victories over Napoleon. Near the main entrance, you can see the tomb of the unknown soldier with an eternal flame, commemorating the fallen heroes of World War II. Taste some ice cream or the savory pies sold along the walking paths. The northern part of the garden is adjacent to a large, underground shopping center.

  • Simply beautiful. I just wish it had less people, than I enjoy it much more. I like to come there in the early morning. And the atmosphere is unbelievable, so peaceful!
  • It's absolutely beautiful and relaxing especially in the summer but in winter it's a beautiful place to take a quick stroll too... A great place
  • Breathtaking beautiful park. A little crowded because of tourists. Food court , shopping malls nearby. Nice place for hangout with friends and family.
  • The place I come every time I visit Moscow...Beautiful, green, well maintained park with paths to walk and benches to rest. Easy access to the metro station is a plus too.
  • One should come to the Moscow Kremlin for the whole day to see as much as possible. With museum and gallery visits it could take as long as one week. Free parking is available in a few places on Sundays.
