There are several Metro stations serving Alexander Gardens, most convenient for us was 0xhotny Riad (OXOTHbIN) on Red Line 1. The Metro exits are numbered and walk around the subway to find exits 5-7 and follow the corridor to the end. You will emerge in front of Marshal Zhukov’s statue, from here head right and proceed through the gates at... More

Along side the Kremlin, this park is great for strolling and getting a feel for the local ambient. The tomb of the unknown soldier is on this park.

Leaving the Red Square through the gate near Kazan church and State History Museum then turn slightly to the left. On the left side of the garden and close to the Kremlin wall there is the tomb of Unknown Soldier guarded by two guards replaced by a nice ceremony each rounded hour. Then in front of you and to the... More

Actually it is a part of Kremlin ensemble outside its walls. Solemn - Tomb of Unknown Soldier is here with the Eternal Flame. Beautiful gate. Unfortunately, a horrendous shopping center was built along the garden to occupy a nearby square - so that no protest demonstrations could be held on it. Most of the fence which surrounded the garden was... More

We got to the ticketing office for the Kremlin early, so had some time to walk around this park. It is quite nice in the summer, with everything in full bloom. Not much here save a couple of monuments (in Russian), but good for sitting out and people watching nevertheless. The imposing walls of the Kremlin on one end is... More

These gardens are adjacent to the Kremlin wall and towers and next door to Red Square. They house the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a lovely needle statue and spectacular fountains.

I found this to be probably one of the highlights of my trip to Moscow. A beautifully maintained garden in walking distance to Red Square, Kremlin and St Basils it is a brilliant place to get a little bit of peace. Although very busy, the wide avenues and pretty flowers are an incredibly welcoming oasis from Moscow's busy streets.

Stroll through Alekandrovsky sad, have some ice cream and admire the flowers and the Kremlin walls. The tourist entrance to Kreml is in the middle of this garden.
