Manezhnaya square and Alexandrovsky garden
When the Moscow Kremlin was being constructed, Neglinnaya river was flowing just at the site of today's location of the Alexandrovsky garden. In 1817- 1819 it was enclosed in a tunnel. In 1812, after the inglorious outcome of Napoleon from Moscow, a huge part of the city was burned, the Emperor Alexander I ordered to lay out a gorgeous garden under the Kremlin wall, which still bears his name. Manezhnaya square is adjacent to the garden.
