Patriarch's Pond, Moscow
(4.5/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • It is one of the oldest and most beautiful parks in Moscow. Here is a nice stroll in the warm day. An oasis of peace and tranquillity in the heart of the metropolis.

  • The most fantastic place of Moscow. Very pleased that over the past years has built not one new building. How wonderful it is at any time of the year, But if you are lucky, then visit this site in the spring, "the number 14 spring month Nisan" and watch a beautiful sunset, and still go to him in the first days of September and look at the pond, hours 8-megabytes in the morning, enjoy the peace and quiet. A skating rink in winter. Finally he revived this year. Sorry just not sedjat 30 years ago retired and do not play dominoes.

  • Well this is now one of the most European parts of Moscow. If you want to go for a walk and to eat in a better than usual restaurant you shall come here.
  • Great place to hang out and try restaurants above average
  • Very picturesque place, but very bad infrastructure, the sidewalks in heavy rain are basically flooded and one can't get around without getting wet, public toilet is awful and very dirty, do yourself a favor and don't go inside not to ruin the impression of the place, just go in one of the nearby cafes.
  • Tiny piece of freshness in a crowded city
  • Nice #calm place#good place for hanging out
