Description of the Alexander Gardens

Alexander Gardens (Александровский Сад) (Moscow)

Alexander Garden is a small stretch near walls of Moscow Kremlin. It is popular with Moscow citizen and tourists alike. Historically a river Neglinka once created a natural defence line to Moscow defences. However it was covered by an arched structure and buried. So it still flows down there, but most people never seen it. Alexander Garden was opened in 1812 shortly after Napoleon Bonaparte left Moscow along with this Grand Army. It happened during reign of a Russian Emperor Alexander I and hence the name. Today Alexander Garden holds Monument to an Unknown soldier and an Eternal Flame commemorating lives lost during Great Patriotic War that is known in the West simply as World War II. It is a common place for veterans to met on May 9th here to celebrate Victory in Europe. Additionally Alexander Garden is was mentioned in The Master and Margarita. In the book Margarita met Azazello for the first time before visiting great Spring Ball of Satan.
