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.

Our trip to Russia and Scandinavia had a GREAT start, all thanks to Arthur. He was funny, knowledgeable, flexible, punctual, and attentive. In addition to his tour guide services, he also took great pictures for us. Thank you Arthur for your help with the propaganda posters. I love them.
