In the Alexander park is the Arsenal the red building that is in the center of the park. Very nice tour we got (russian only) and the park itself was still very green. Nice colored tree leaves.

This park is free. If you happen to be in Pushkin for a day or two, this is a nice place to go for a walk and explore. We stayed there for a couple days in August and the weather was nice. Chinese bridge is must to see.

This garden is a pleasant reprise from city life in Moscow. Not only that but visit the gardens on the western side of the Kremlin Walls to see the changing of the guard on the hour at the eternal flame for fallen soldiers. Done with the style that only the Russians can muster.

Went there only because I had two hours to kill until I could get into Catherine's Palace. Not sure if worth coming all the way from SPb just to visit this park, but great if you have spare time before or after the visit to Catherine's Palace. Also, there's only a tiny fraction of tourists compared to swarms of Catherine... More

so vast, so many buildings along the way. and alexander palace as the highlight of it. alexander palace closed its gates this august due to major reconstruction work in and around it. it will reopen in 2018. nevertheless the park with its pavillons and other buildings is worth a stroll. one can even take a horseride here. oh my. wonderful.

This park is not so popular among tourists and that's not fair! Well, it's not so well-groomed and shining as Yekaterininsky park, but it's charming and romantic in this slightly shabby look. And it's absolutely free of charge, that makes it even more attractive=)

One of the wonders of Russia, this park bears lots of family memories, including that of our wedding in a Pavilion on an island several years ago. Love coming back here, and it never fails to deliver the romance and beauty of the years gone by. Please keep it just as it is for many more generations to come...
