Patriarch's Pond, Moscow

(4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Stroll through the Patriarchal-separate pleasure in Moscow, especially if you read Bulgakov. But even if you haven't read it, you will enjoy a walk around the pond and visit some of the many cafés and restaurants located nearby.

  • Very nice Park, even in the winter. It's nice to walk together ... immediately this romance) Around anyone, quietly, quietly ... Liked it at first, then a snack at one of the restaurants nearby, and then again for a walk, shake up the food)

  • 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
