Combine with the guard changing near the Kremlin, visit restaurant Mu-Mu and have a stroll. Perfect day!

The garden is a great place to spend some time on your own, as it isn't too crowded. In the summertime, you can enjoy sitting in one of their many different flowery lawns and appreciating nature in all its glory.

The Moscow Kremlin citadel has a triangular shape, bordered by the Moscow river on the south, Red Square to the east and Alexander Gardens along the west side walls.
Primary the gardens were called Kremlin's, but after the Alexander II coronation they were renamed to the present name.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped with several fountains, tomb of the unknown soldier and plenty of flowers blooming and best to visit in spring.

One of the most charming places in this gorgeous city. It is awesome in any season but my favourite one is late spring, May. The park is drowning in flowers, mostly tulips, and looks majestically beautiful.
I like to enter it traditional way, through elaborate XIXth century gates by the Red Square. They are made in empire style and it is not a co-incidence - the garden was supposed to glorify Russia's viсtory over Napoleon so symbolism of fasces with axes in the middle of them, lightnings in the claws of double-headed eagles, medusas, etc. was clear to Muscovites without further explanation.
If you move from the gates to the south you'll most probably walk over hidden river called Neglinka. There used to be dams here, baths, forges, mills, ponds breeding swans for tzar's feasts and even a herb garden of Ivan the Terrible. Locals also loved to sled downhill there and organize fist fightings - a favourite Russian entertainment in those times.
Nowadays we always take numerous pictures here and send them to our friends abroad - to France, US, Germany, Sweden, Uruguay. Reaction is always the same - WOW!!!
Moscow is undoubtfully one of the best-maintained capitals of Europe. Clean, comfortable, tidy, safe. The more we travel west the starker the difference is - to the detriment of Paris, London, Rome, Madrid, etc. Shabbier facades, much more rubbish, "unorthodox" manners of latest newcomers, pickpockets. And lackadaisical police.
If anyone had told me, say, twenty years ago that changes could've been so dramatic, I'd have laughed in his/her face. Sad. Very sad.
Proud to live in Moscow.

This was traditionally the park that Muscovites liked to walk, it was built in 1812 and and called “Kremlin gardens” until Alexander 2nd was coronated in 1856 and the gardens were renamed in his honour. Before the park was built in 1812 there was a river there called “Neglinka” (translates: “No mud”). The river was very popular, had crystal clean water and lots of various types of fish. Local people loved the place and came here often. So over time the river became dirty and narrow, it was so small just like a canal and then was tubed and made to flow underground only (by the order of Alexander 1). This is where the Eternal flame is for all the heros of Russia who died in wars. We came just in time for the change of guard. The actual garden is just a not so big park with the Kremlin walls on one side and fountains and other park features on the other. You can have a nice wander along it.

The promenade that runs along the external side of the Kremlin walls has already been suited to protect all plants from frostbite. All flower beds are scaffolded, some shrubs too; fountains are dry and some slabs that were broken are being replaced. The grotto commemorating the withdrawals of Napoleon’s troops is scaffolded and under repair; thus the beautiful statue of Alexander I and a few other monuments are left to be appreciated as well as the large bronze plaques depicting the garden’s layout.
