After the fall of the USSR they retired the statues of the architects of the revolution to the park. And there are things that really strike you about them. The smiles, the mark of purpose and vision on the faces, the high foreheads of intellect,...More

We visited in August on a Wednesday. Although the lawns were tidy, the flower beds were straggly and there was nothing happening in the park. Compared to other parks we had visited, Gorky was a bit under whelming and tired. May come alive on weekends

This historical park is great for an afternoon stroll. Really cool for people watching especially on the weekends. Many events and artists. Take a walk along the river and see the sights in this famous park. Enjoy!

We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed a stroll through the park before finding a great outdoor restaurant for lunch. There is lots to see and do and on entering the first thing I saw was a red squirrel running across the path in...More

This is perhaps the best known of Moscow's parks. In late autumn when I visited it was still quite interesting as the leaves had already changed colour or were falling off. It's quite a large park and nice to walk through and soak it all...More

This is THE place to go of a weekend in Moscow to people watch as it feels like every Muscovite is out too. The young women dressed to the nines in ridiculously high shoes and short skirts, hanging onto the arms of young men desperately...More

We visited for an afternoon with our children. Such a big park, but very relaxing and very pretty. Our children really enjoyed playing at the children's playground while we enjoyed the opportunity to rest our tired feet for a little bit.

We spent a delightful afternoon wandering around on a beautiful sunny day. Watched the river go by, had a nice lunch, an ice cream later on, and just enjoyed the day. It is much bigger than we thought. Would love to return soon.

See what locals do on a weekday evening here. You can also join in with them, whether it be just walking and appreciating the river view and trees, skateboarding, photographing, watching kids in the playground.

This park is a gigantic stretch of greenery and can be reached by metro. There are a number of things to see and do within the park. It is a lovely place to take nice walks, breathe in the fresh air, admire the flowers and...More

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
