The Ice Sculpture exhibition at Alexander Gardens over the winter period is fantastic to see. Huge ice sculptures and carvings make this exhibition a must see if you are in Moscow in winter. Although it's a cold venue, plenty of hot drinks and food stalls are on hand.

Very nice pathway (though not long), beautiful sights. But crowded as Kremlin is nearby. There are fountains. Shopping mall nearby.

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.

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
