With summer coming in and temperatures coming up, you really want to enjoy nature! If you already know mosts parks in Moscow, here is a little treasure for plant lovers, hidden in the very center of Moscow!
You will find this three century old Phamaceutical Garden “Aptekarsky Ogorod” not far from Prospekt Mira metro Station. For 300 rub (adult tickets) you will be walking around in its open air arboretum and wandering among the exotic plants of its greenhouses. And if that is not enough for you, you can even enjoy a concert (coming up are bands invited for the City Jazz Festival) or watch a movie (which might once in a while be in English)
