4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
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. Add Patriarch's Pond and other attractions to your Moscow trip itinerary using our Moscow family vacation planner.

  • Quiet, serene, private place. Boasting wonderful views across the pond. Here's how to arrange a good long walk and sit on a bench in silence.

  • A very pleasant place for walking in the center of the city. We were lucky with the weather, was a sunny day, Golden autumn. Leaves rustle underfoot. People quite a bit. You can sit on a bench, hang out with friends. The place has its own atmosphere or aura.

  • Live in three minutes, so I will be subjective. If you look for a place to walk within the GARDEN RING (specifically singled out)-then surely there are a few nature. And how would the mayors do not scare birds indigenous Muscovites, the pond remains, monuments more pose and even promise in winter zagaživat′ all fotovystavkami lawns and other things. If you like Bulgakov-go here. If you like to look through you as we try to roll the strollers with children, then you also here) often walk celebrities, or rather their less each year-less you can meet here the masters scene and more "porečenkovyh". In order to understand who is the Patriarch's ponds, their spirit and philosophy, you don't need to know that their goal is to make it give water from the basements of nearby houses. You just come here on a weekday morning hours in 10:00 and rustle with leaves. )
