Why locals love it

This is the oldest botanic garden in Russia, founded by Peter the Great to grow medicinal herbs. Now it's a botanic garden of Moscow State University. Very cosy, easy-to-find and always interesting for nature lovers.
During spring-summer-fall season there is always something to see - it won't be the same in a week or two!

Why you should visit it

Well-known by locals, it's a good spot to relax from the fuss of the big city, breath some fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature. The garden is cozy and photogenic.
There, they also provide guided tours, lectures and various educational events.

Special tip

Don't forget to check their rules of behaviour on the website. Of course it's forbidden to touch, pick or eat plants, collect seeds.
