Alexandrovsky Garden is just off of Manezhnaya Ploshchad, but it really is a delightful green spot in central Moscow that really shouldn't be missed. Of course, it's only green spring through fall, which probably means half of the year. More than just the ability to stroll and escape the traffic, noise and pollution of central Moscow, the garden also allows you to reflect on the enormous sacrifices made by the Russian nation during the Second World War. The entrance to the Garden from Manezhnaya is actually a memorial to the soldiers and civilians killed, with an eternal flame, and the names of the cities that came under seige and either successfully resisted the Nazi onslaught or heroically survived Nazi occupation. Don't be surprised if you find lots of Russians taking snapshots of themselves or their friends in front of a city's name.

Address: Alexandrovsky Sad
Directions: Just next to Manezhnaya Square

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
