This parc is situated close to the river which gives a beautiful view on the buildings on the other side. Inside the parc there are several food places and toilet. It is worth visiting it because of the great fountain, and music and water shows during selected hours. Very enjoyable.

We walked along the river bank to Gorky park and wandered round enjoying the peace and calmness. There are places to sit, eat and drink and free toilet are provided too. The musical water fountains were mesmerising and the sculpture garden was interesting to walk through. After a morning in the city/museums with many people the park is a great... More

A great place to explore. Lots of seating areas and snack options. Very definitely a place the locals go to play. We visited on a very hot Sunday afternoon to discover Russian families out for the afternoon to enjoy an ice cream and to dip their feet in the lake.

In winter there is a huge ice scating track. Ice scates can be simple and cheap rented. They are very clean and get disinfected after each usage. On the track there are different food and drink places. It's very special in the early evening hours.

Staying in Yakimanka

Neighborhood Profile
Yakimanka
Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth (restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access anywhere is easy, just hop on a river boat and continue your journey throughout the city.
