“Good weekend programme”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Good to have a stroll and observe Moscowites enjoying their weekend. The park is in great shape. If weather turns bead, go to the Garage Gallery within the park.

“Good for relaxation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

The park is nice, you can play sports (volleyball, table tennis), however I think that you prefer a bit more high paced vacation, this is not the perfect place. However, it does offer a nice stroll along river Moscow.

“It's different!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

It may be an interesting experience to discover a place that is equally relaxing (beanbags, mattresses) as it is active (extreme sports, beach valley, basketball, roller blading, pakour, table tennis and frisbee grounds). Water bicycles, a singing fountain, restaurants and a playground will be equally part of your discovery. Altogether it is a kind of an interesting mix of modern Moscow and the spirit of 50s that is well kept in the park.

The visit will be worth of 4 stars when combined with Muzeon (just across the road from Gorky Park). The museum is an open air park with different types of monuments built during Soviet era. It is tastefully done and is worth a visit when combined with a walk along the Moscow river bank (other side of the building). It is probably one of the most European places in Moscow yet with interesting attractions and preserved local colorite. If you are looking for a charming relaxing walk yet with an opportunity to discover something new about Moscow - this is definitely a place to visit.

“Big and spacious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

This park definately was my grrat choice. Lots of room, huge fountains, lots of cafés, free Wi Fi all over the park left me want to visit the park again. You can also take a tour of Moskva River with breathtaking views and a quick 1 hour and a half story of the surrounding buildings. Very impresssed!

“This place has everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

We visited here on our last day and absolutely loved it. Such as laid back and chilled out atmosphere, it had everything you could want from beach volleyball to restaurants, and plenty of sunbathing spots! Especially nice because it was absolutely roasting that day and you could walk down the boulevard next to the river and soak up the atmosphere.
