  • In Moscow until pig squeal a little well-kept gardens, and even more so with a scientific slant, like this one. It is nice and interesting and surprising to the same: I couldn't even imagine that in bloom, some plants on the other, the entire warm season flowers and shrubs. I prudika love to sit and knit rest wonderfully for -2 1.5 hours. And like Center!

  • A great place for leisure Moscow residents, where you can escape from the bustle and plunge into the world of "the jungle". However, this place is absolutely not suitable for a special visit. Besides the two greenhouses in winter this place absolutely nothing to boast about.
