  • In this place have a rest soul and bustle of the big city. Greenhouses with tropical trees and flowers, well-groomed territory with shady areas, tranquil pools, exotic plants, wonderful aquariums with fish and shrimp. I adore this place. Using territory in here, you've got other, fairy, green, fragrant flora. Vykidyvaesh' from the head all the problems and on the hour-the other immersed in the peace and quiet. And in the summer you can still visit the plant shop and buy another flower.

  • Amazing location in the heart of Moscow! You come into the gate and ... you find yourself in another world. The world of nature. Flowers, trees, hills and ponds. This small cozy space, where you can walk, get acquainted with plants (and how else you learn that grows around?)), but also exotic inhabitants in greenhouses. In General, the grateful-that it is. Interesting at any age)))

  • I love this little botanical garden. It is always quiet and beautiful. The founder of the garden feel m. Lomonosov. From spring to autumn, the air is filled with oramatom flowers. Especially in spring, when blossoms lilac Quickly forget that quite a number of noisy Street and want to sit on the bench, walk the alleys or around the pond. It is close to restaurants. Hungry after walking will not stay. And even garden is located opposite the famous Institute of Urine (which even tv series filmed).
