Gorkiy Central Park of Culture and Recreation, Moscow

(4.4/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Celebrated in countless books, movies, and songs, Gorkiy Central Park of Culture and Recreation draws visitors with its cafes, contemporary public art projects, food stands, and sports facilities. Once packed with theme park attractions, the park underwent a major renovation in 2011, losing most of its old-fashioned amusement rides to become an eco-friendly recreational zone. Designed by avant-garde architect Konstantin Melnikov and opened in 1928, the sprawling park now features an open-air theater and free Wi-Fi throughout its 120 hectares (300 acres). Nearly 40,000 visitors come every day to bike, walk, jog, and rollerblade. During the colder months, the park becomes a winter wonderland, its frozen ponds turning into giant skating rinks. Avoid traffic congestion by coming on foot or by public bus. See Gorkiy Central Park of Culture and Recreation and all Moscow has to offer by arranging your trip with our Moscow tourist route planner.
