There are many parks and green spaces dotted around Moscow but in my 8 years of living in the city, this was always my favourite. It is huge and rambling - it's very easy to spend hours here - and features a range of sights: historical buildings, orchards, neat paths and cafes and rambling baths and wooded areas. Bring a...

Good place to visit for its historical background and nice view over Moscow and the river. Not much to visit and most information is not translated in English. Would probably not put it on my priority place to visit in Moscow if I had limited time in the city.

The gate of the park is a long walk from a metro station, and you have to walk a lot of km inside the park if you want to see all sites. (Old wood buildings, churces, an old water tower)

This is a pretty astonishing building. I would never have imagined this kind of "palace." We enjoyed this very much.

Big and beautiful park not so far from city center. Pet friendly!!!Churches and bistros are successfully located next to each other. The best spot is Pedestrian area along Moscow riverbank. No charges!!!

Too large territory, from one interesting place to another - need to walk very long time. There're interesting places in one part, near metro Kolomenskoe, if you want to see the wooden buildings and modern art sculptures-it would be another part near the metro Kashirskaya. So, from all the park you can see very beautiful panorama of Moscow river. Attention,... More

Kolomenskoe is among oldest tzar residences in Russia and one of the best parks in Moscow. It combines nice and not overloaded museum (ok for kinds since 5 I suppose) and a huge riverside park. If you have a spare day and the weather is good then definitely go there. The only con is the absence of good places to... More

We visited this site as it came highly recommended in a guide book. We thought it was OK, but I would rank it below several other Moscow attractions. While it is a nice park, it does not have quite the interest of Gorky Park or the park surrounding the Novodevichy Convent. It also has tsarist connections, but really cannot compete... More

I lived in Moscow during the tumultuous 90's and hadn't returned for 20 years. This park was one of my favorite back then and is still one of my favorites. Historically, it's pivotal. Aesthetically, it's gorgeous (they've renovated and cared for it extensively). Financially, it's reasonable (you buy tickets for whichever buildings you might want to go in). There are... More

When I visited in 2005 I was on a tour and did some of the cultural activities. On my most recent visit, I simply walked the park. You can enter the grounds for free and there are some beautiful buildings and views. The park is quite close to the metro stop of the same name and there are a couple... More
