(650+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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.

  • A nice walk along the Alexandrovsky garden in the evening, or even at night. Sit on a bench, look at the walls of the Kremlin, possible move to red square, or to the side of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour

  • Beautiful gardens, manicured (as well as the entire city) even in winter. You will also find the tomb of the unknown soldier.

  • Gladly walked under the walls of the Kremlin. Polazili on Grotto, we started under the Jets-circular fountain, plenty of nafotografirovalis'. All were very happy. Entered, according to tradition, immediately with the red square. And even while still under the impression of the country's central square, the community received a lot of positive emotions)))
