Situated along the Kremlin's wall, this garden was originally dedicated to victory in the Napoleonic War and consisted of three separate gardens. Walk through the main cast iron gate to spend a minute in silence in front of the WWII memorial (every Russian family lost at least one member in that war). Watch the eternal flame and witness the change of young, good-looking guards gloriously marching in unison (relocated here from Lenin's tomb in 90's). Continue your walk to discover the Grotto (stones recycled from houses ruined by Napoleon's army), and the Obelisk, ironically placed to celebrate 300 years of Romanov's rule in 1913, four years before it was tweaked by bolsheviks to represent their interpretation of history and then restored to its original look in 2013. Time to turn to the other side, where happy teenagers on a hot summer afternoon loudly splash in the waters of the fountain with galloping black horses (again!), created by born-in-the-USSR artist Zurab Tsereteli.

If you enjoy looking at flowers and strolling around gardens, you'll find it hard to do better than this! Lots of great fountains around and it gives you great views of around the Kremlin walls.

Actually, there's no garden here. It's just a straight pathway between the Eternal Fire and the Greater Kammenny bridge, lined with all sorts of sculptures, Soviet and post-Soviet. It's a perfect romantic walk if you're not alone, but a pretty boring itinerary for a solo traveler.

In the Aleksandrovskiy Sad (Alexander Garden) you can see some fountains and the change of guards. It is a nice place for walking and next to the red square. So WHY NOT?
