  Least we forget
by TheWanderingCamel

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the northern end of the Alexandrovsky Gardens that run along the west side of the Kremlin is a place of national pilgrimage. An eternal flame burns before the tomb that honours all the fallen, and along the path there are plaques naming the cities that bore the brunt of the fighting. The guard here changes every hour with much precision and almost balletic formality.

Directions: At the foot of the Arsenal Tower
