The squre was full of fencing and musical stages as there was obviously a show taking place. It has horse-drawn carriages to hire and is brimming with bundreds of tourists. A great place to sbsorb the local culture.

In the Alexander park is the Arsenal the red building that is in the center of the park. Very nice tour we got (russian only) and the park itself was still very green. Nice colored tree leaves.
