Alexander Garden (Aleksandrovsky Sad), Moscow

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Stroll among colorful flower beds and impressive historical monuments at Alexander Garden (Aleksandrovsky 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. Put Alexander Garden (Aleksandrovsky Sad) into our Moscow itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Moscow.

  • Beautiful and cozy place with a bunch of people is a historical object. Visiting the armoury difficult not to visit the Alexander garden. Good to walk, enjoy the views and think of something great and that is still cool that this place was not destroyed during the Soviet Union as a legacy of Tsarist Russia.

  • Great all snowy Park with its ice rink, a setting that changes our parks to the French even in winter!
