Alexander Garden

Nikolai Galkin/TASS
The Alexander Garden, one of Moscow's first public parks, laid out near the Kremlin Wall, is the location of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – a monument to all the Soviet soldiers who had died during World War II and whose identities could not be determined. The memorial was designed by the architects Dmitry Burdin, Vladimir Klimov and Yury Rabayev and sculptor Nikolai Tomsky. Deeper into the garden, closer to the Kutafiya Tower, is an obelisk in honour of the 300th anniversary of the Romanov family, designed by architect Sergei Vlasyev.
