Create an itinerary including Aleksandrovskiy Sad
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.

  • If you are in Moscow it’s the place you should definitely visit. This place is so beautiful and amazing. Best time to visit this place is evening. You can reach this place by bus or metro. The garden is very beautiful and you’ll definitely love it. This is my favourite place in Moscow. I regularly visit this place to spend some time in the evening. I will share some pictures of this place and you’ll know about the place from these pictures. It’s definitely a must visit place.
  • Its a wonderful square and I can easily spend here hours while gazing the beauty of the splendid architectures. The buildings are amazing and beautiful.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful historical place near Kremlin and Red Square with old landmarks, new enormous statues, flowers around eternal flame and park with beautiful trees. Must visit
  • Beautiful garden with full of green, the most interesting part is that a river is flowing below the garden. You can feel the sound of water flowing below the ground. One of the biggest fountain is in this garden.
