The garden is tucked away in between houses and restaurants; it was a peaceful oasis with lots of interest even though Autumn had set in. A pleasant stroll along its winding paths, it had some interesting sculpture amongst the trees and lake and rill. There...More

This place offers you everything about relaxation and leisure you want in Moscow. Go there in morning time and enjoy the place in light. Be there in Morning and try to visit repeatedly. And you are going to love everything about this place.

This is larger than it looks from the outside and even has a small Garden Centre shop. It's an oasis within a busy city. At the front are a range of cafes and a great Georgian restaurant upstairs overlooking the gardens.

Visit to this place soothes and recharges you. Located in the city near to Vladykino Metro Station. From there it is under 20 minutes’ ride to reach Borovitskaya, right next to the Kremlin in the very centre of Moscow.
