    Victory Park

    Victory Park, Moscow
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The park was completed in 1995 to celebrate the 50-th anniversary of the Soviet Union's World War Two victory.
    The park itself is laid out around a grand fountain-lined axis with a huge white crescent-shaped building housing the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War.

    Fondest memory: metro station “Park Pobedy”

    Gorky Park, Moscow
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: the Central Park of Culture and Relaxation (Gorky Park) built by the Muscovites with their own hands in 1928. Today, this is one of the most popular leisure areas for both Muscovites and visitors to the capital.

    Alexander Gardens (next to the Kremlin)

    by jeoren Written Jul 4, 2005
    Alexander Gardens

    Favorite thing: One of the public gardens in Moscow is Alexander Gardens. You'll find here several nice fountains and other things. One of them is a globe where Moscow is indicated by an image of the Basilicus Cathedral. (you'll see it in the middle of the picture I added).
    Unfortunately the Central Exhibition Hall at Alexander Gardens was hard up last year.

    Izmailovsky Park

    Izmailovsky Park

    Favorite thing: Izmailovsky Park is one of the city's oldest parks and covers an area of 332 hectares. It was founded under the reign of Peter the Great and since then has accumulated numerous ponds and attractions. It also hosts the Izmailovo market, one of the best places to pick up souvenirs.

    Interior of the Palace

    Favorite thing: ...see more info in my Must See Activity Tips.

    This is one of the most beatiful and remarkable places in Moscow. Though, due to very severe weather of Moscow, it is opened for visitors for just very few days in the year. ;(

    Favorite thing: I can say that this place is the most crowded. It;s situated btw Red Square and Alexandrovski Sad (garden) and near the 0 km,and that means that RIGHT in the center of the city!!!
    In spring and summer time Moscow blossoms and and changes completely.So, my opinion Manezhnaya Ploschad' (Square)it's the most suitable place for dates:)

    Manezhnaya sqare

    Favorite thing: MANEZHNAYA SQUARE
    A new public garden was inaugurated in 1997 next to the Manege and Alexandrovsky Gardens. The square is full of fountains, beautiful flowers, and sculptures. Below it there is a large shopping centre 'Okhotniy Riad' with restaurants and bars.
