This sprawling park has many nice buildings. My favourite is the UNESCO world heritage white cathedral with a pointed steeple that prevents accummulation of snow. This structure is so pretty!! I also like the old oak grove area and the log cabin that Peter the great stayed in.
View of the Moscow river is also great from here.

Definitely a top ten place to visit. Take the metro and stop at the station with the same name. Walk straight ahead upon turning left when exiting the station and follow the tram lines. Or just ask the people where is this big park and they should be able to point you the right direction.

This is one of the best parks of Moscow. First, it's huge and full of beautiful views. Second, there is a unique church that was built in 16th century and now is UNESCO heritage site. The best time to go is early autumn since everything becomes yellow, orange and red. But summer is also very-very nice.

This is a huge estate in the south-central part of Moscow that has been preserved nearly intact. The musuem and buildings are beautiful and interesting to be sure...but the main thing to see is the grounds. Go in the summer and you are guaranteed to see a few wedding couples taking pictures, some open-air expositions, a cultural festival, or a traveling fair for the kids. The walk along the river is great, or stroll through the orchards, or stop at one of the innumerable ice-cream stands and get a cone for the kiddos.

If you don't speak Russian, the ticketing system is infuriating. If you do speak Russian it is still confusing! It doesn't seem to be possible to buy a ticket for all of the buildings. When you do buy a ticket, the staff don't seem to know if it is valid or not. On two occasions staff had to ask each other if our tickets were valid - on one occasion two members of staff had a different view on whether our ticket was valid or not. We were let in only to be turfed out again!

The Ascension church is simple inside so probably not worth the entry fee. The views over Moscow from the collection of buildings around the church are worth seeing. Peter the Great's cabin is worth seeing the inside of to see how simply he lived. There is a museum opposite the church which has a model of the wooden palace but has only Russian information so it is difficult to understand what it is about.

The wooden palace is a modern reconstruction but worth looking around. Again tickets are a palaver... you buy entry at a ticket office and then pay again inside for an audio guide and photo pass.

Overall the place is worth seeing but they really should sort out the tickets.
