On the four corners of the Kremlin bricked wall, there are towers with golden stars at the peek. The Garden was built upon the order of... More

The Ice Sculpture exhibition at Alexander Gardens over the winter period is fantastic to see. Huge ice sculptures and carvings make this exhibition a must see if you are in Moscow in winter. Although it's a cold venue, plenty of hot drinks and food stalls are on hand.

Very nice pathway (though not long), beautiful sights. But crowded as Kremlin is nearby. There are fountains. Shopping mall nearby.
