Alexander Upper Garden
This is a view on the Alexander Upper Garden (between the Manezhnaya Square and the Kremlin) which has the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier commemorating World War II with the Eternal Flame of Glory near the Kremlin Wall . The Alexander Gardens (Aleksandrovsky Sad) were created in 1819-21 by architect Bovet. The nice park consist of the Upper, Middle and Lower Gardens.
The Manezhnaya Square was reconstructed at 1997 and it is the big trade-recreational complex now with underground parking and shops (4 floors), with a lot of fountains and restourants.

From the time Arthur picked us up at the airport to when he dropped us off there again, we were superbly well looked after. He's knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Moscow and its history and architecture and great fun to be with too. His knowledge of shortcuts around the city is excellent and we had the oportunity to experience the controlled madness of the Moscow roads in safety! We saw so much more than we could possibly have done on our own and without any of the stress. We highly recommend him.
