Alexander Garden (Aleksandrovsky Sad), Moscow

4.7
#4 of 165 in Parks in Moscow
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 small square, who knows the whole Russia-here the eternal flame at the tomb of the unknown soldier, guard, monument to Alexander I and Patriarch Germogenu. Everyone who comes to the capital comes here. Too many people (summer-winter a little less). Spring tulips bloom beautifully, in the summer it is nice to walk around the fountains. The place is meaningful to all and very beautiful.
