In this photo you can see Alexander Garden near the Kremlin in Moscow last summer.
Linden alley was planted in 1947, trees were kept in good order.
But not for long this beauty pleased Muscovites, all cut down in the fall.
How this place looks like now, look at the cut.
Now, the main avenue of the Alexandrovsky Park looks like:
So Muscovites rest in the Alexander Garden in past years.
Now, these trees are no more, they cut down on someone's ill will, and in their place planted new trees, which grow even fifty years. Why was this done? Linden - one of the most dolgorastuschih trees. Usually, their age - about 120 years old and known instances of 800-1000 years. Why was it necessary to destroy the lime avenue age of 65 years? Who prevented it? They were healthy, strong trees that are planted immediately after the Great Patriotic War. This is our memory, our history.
However, much worse destroyed linden alley that comes close to Kutafia tower. The tower was built in 1516 under the leadership of one of the authors of the Moscow Kremlin Aleviz Milanese. Italian architect and built a tower at Trinity bridge leading to the Kremlin. It could lead the defense of the Kremlin from the enemy.
