I visited this park in May, the weather was good and the park was very nice. It was interesting to see the plants, especially the exotic ones in greenhouses. I even saw some plants that eat insects!

I doubt you should visit it during your first trip to Moscow, however if it the third visit and in summer you can enjoy walking in this small botanic gurden. It was foundated by Peter the Great and recently renovated.

I was looking for a little something to do while I had the best part of a day by myself, when I came across this little gem. It is fair to say that not many Moscow inhabitants are aware that this place exists (even She had no idea). It is tucked away next to Проспект Мира станции (Prospekt Mira metro... More

This place is interesting both as historical place and as nature example. Before planning the visit take a look at this Garden schedule as there could be interesting flower or art exibition during the warm time of the year.

Small but nice garden in noisy Moscow town - quite difficult to find: even the entrance is through fast food restaurant and small commercial shops... Good selection of plants carefully selected representing the regions and landscapes in a green house. Very good place simply to rest in calm inside the big town, but be sure it's dry weather for a...

1. Even lots of locals don't know about this place — this is a good reason to visit it! This is a very quite place inside a big and noisy city, hidden behind buildings in a Prospect Mira. Entrace is very unremarkable and you need to pass through the building with restaurants. 2. You need to buy a ticket to... More

Nice place to get fresh air, unfortunately not for free, but if you go for the concert there- it is value for money.

No need to hurry and roam around, just get a perfect place to sit down, if you are tired and need some air just do it here without the hassle and nuzzle of the city.
