  • A great place for hiking and especially cycling. Conveniently located on the outskirts, but in the city, while in the southern tip of the park opened station CIP white stone. Visit the part inside the MKAD-free. In the park there are several paved paths, strolling in the Park live moose. Also an interesting object-abandoned warehouses near Whitestone with beautiful graffiti. The Park Administration is quite far from the Park, be careful!

  • Beautiful places to eat in the Woods: a pond, a Glade of fairy tales, forestry, road in Sokolniki. In the forest full of creatures of all: Moose, squirrels, birds, grass, homeless dogs met, many ducks on the pond, etc. Air village chic, almost! On a pond on the left there is a sports area, where many simulators, saw that swim in the pond, near him Tan, GCSE, many cyclists, seniors, parents with children, just a couple of days off is always full of people.
