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.

Arthur is absolutely wonderful. I traveled to Russia alone but didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to see and learn as much about Russia, as possible. We saw the tourist spots as well as the authentic Russian restaurants and shops. Arthur was informative with history and background about the sites, Russia's buildings and Russia in general. I felt completely safe at all times and have recommended Arthur to many families adopting from my adoption agency. Kindly, Tammy Stevens
