Embrace local culture at Sokolniki Park, reputed to be the city's oldest and most popular public park. Originally seen as the tzar's resting place, the park has been revamped following some years of neglect. Kids will enjoy the amusement park, complete with several ziplines. Rent a bicycle to tour the 515 hectare (1,272 acre) park, or hop on a segway for different kind of tour. To refuel, stop at one of the many cafes and restaurants within the park. Sokolniki Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Moscow Edition.

    Went to Sokolniki whole family on the daughters birthday. Prior to that, was in the park only in childhood-35 years ago. The Park is very impressed. Extensive trails for walking. Moreover, the Strip for cyclists is not otcherchena, as is often the case, and is separated from the gorshochkami with flowers-very nicely and comfortably-walk and not turn as anyone knocked. Centralnajaja part of the Park is very compact. Nearby attractions and playgrounds and public catering. Work all sorts of exhibitions. My daughter and I went to the exhibition of cats. There they caress and feed the children is very interesting. I would also like to mention the common areas-such purity is not often see, especially in parks! See what works service company-anywhere. With absolutely no snacks. There are also fast food and restroranchiki. Day spent the perfectly! All recommend Sokolniki to relax!

    Kids and adults alike will find activities of interest for every season. Skating, cycling, walking and running, as well as scooters and attractions. A lot of places to have a snack or a proper meal.

    One of my favorite parks in Moscow! A huge place to walk through nature, grab a quick bite, sit and enjoy the day indoors or outdoors, all in the middle of the city.

    Nice park to spend a day with your kids. There are plenty of food stops, activities for kids, bathrooms, place to walk. You can even see a mood or a deer, if you're lucky.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
