Changing of the Guards at the Kremlin in Moscow

The Alexander Gardens in front of the Kremlin
A plaque for the guards on the Kremlin wall
The new guards approaching lifting their legs waist high

I love that the soldiers really do lift their legs waist high when they march along, just like in the movies!

Guard changing places
The guards who have just finished their shift marching off again
The Kremlin guards all look so serious

I cant think that it is a great job having to stand still for a couple of hours in the 5 degree cold of Moscow.

After the big change each guard gets inspected
Hang in there and look serious!

It looked like this guards superior was pinching his cheek on inspection!!

Me standing in front of the eternal peace flame that burns night and day in front of the Kremlin walls
Me sitting on top of the tomb for the forgotten soldiers of Minsk
