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.

In a desperate hurry to find transportation from SVO airport to the hotel, I found Artur's number on the net. About to board the plane, I called him from London at 11am Russian time. By 6.30pm prompt he was waiting for us to clear passport & customs. An hour later (passport control!!), he was still there waiting patiently. He drove us back to the hotel already pointing out sites and facts on the way. Our Moscow experience had begun!!!!
Over the next few days, he gave us a personal, professional service like I have never experienced in my life. He was always early (even at 4.30 in the morning for our return pick up), always smiling, flexible, thoughtful, knowledgeable, passionate, courteous and hilariously funny.
He is a guide, a driver, a friend.
Please, donít look anywhere else. Artur is Moscow!
