“A Hidden Quiet Gem”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The best way to visit the garden is to check the excursions time-table on the web-site and join a tour you like best. 1- and 2-hour tours are available. Unguided visits are not permitted.
Excursion programs vary throughout the year, to show visitors all the most interesting plants and trees. Exotic trees of th dendrarium are on display all year round. You'd be fascinated by bizarre-looking pines and poisonous berries (not dangerous unless you touch them!).
After the excursion, it's nice to take a walk around the University campus or down to the Moskva-river.

The nearest metro station is "Universitet", then you'll need to walk ca. 20 minutes or take any bus that goes to "DK MGU" or just along the Lomonosovsky prospekt.
The groups are to be gathered near the garden entrance at the Akademika Khokhlova street.

Tickets: 200 roubles (ca. 7 USD).
