Here you can walk around different kinds of landscapes – discover the flora of wild forest, steppe, tundra, and the floodplains. Take a photo at famous V-form floating bridge, visit Ice Cave or literally fly over Russia in Media Center.

Gorky park – Being labeled as “the best Moscow park” by press and many Muscovites, it is an interesting and vibrant place all day and all night. Rent a bicycle for two, taste different cuisines and dishes sitting on the river bank, try various sports activities like volleyball, skateboard, parkour, handball, football (soccer) or rent a boat for a fun time off with your little ones.
