Patriarch's Pond, Moscow

4.5
#40 of 2,722 in Things to do in Moscow
Stroll down pathways shaded by trees at Patriarch's Pond, immortalized by writer Mikhail Bulgakov in his world-famous novel "The Master and Margarita." Look for the road sign that says "Do not talk to strangers," showing the silhouettes of the novel's devil and his henchmen. The pond, surrounded by a wide path with benches, also features a boathouse made of stone. You can see statues of Bulgakov and Ivan Krylov, a 19th-century Russian children's writer, near the pond. Have a drink at the cafe Margarita, another reference to the famous novel.

  • Once there were Marsh, and now the cult place. Beautifully even deep in the fall! The pond has already tightened ledkom. Beauty! But even here there is a restaurant, playground, free Wi-Fi. Yes... And it wouldn't hurt to put a monument to Bulgakov. If not, then it wouldn't be these ponds such iconic and atmospheric ...

  • Atmospheric place, which is associated with our city intimately. Here are surprisingly interwoven works-Fables of KRYLOV and "master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov. Jewelry is a monument, a lake with birds, a children's playground. You can also enjoy free Internet under the trees.
