Moscow Guide: Active recreation, entertainment and nightlife

There are equally as much entertainment facilities as landmarks and objects worth seeing in Moscow. Fans of outdoor activities are sure to enjoy local parks and gardens. Thus, tours at the State Museum-Reserve "Tsaritsyno" are very popular. This is a vast territory with an abundance of architectural sights and an incredibly beautiful park area. You should definitely look into the Botanical Garden of Moscow State University, which is sometimes called the "Apothecary Garden" (Aptekarsky Ogorod). The attraction’s name speaks for itself, as there is a huge collection of medicinal herbs represented in the garden.

A great place for strolling and engaging in sports activities is the Victory Park. Gorky Park is also considered to be one of the most popular recreation areas. Moscow Zoo, which is one of the major sights of the city, is a wonderful place for families with children. The zoo will surprise visitors with its size and a rich collection of exotic animals brought from different parts of the world.

In Moscow, there are also vacation spots intended for fans of gambling. One of the most popular casinos is called "Beverly Hills". "Metropol" restaurant, which also has an excellent casino with a wide choice of gaming tables, is situated not far from the city centre. The Central Moscow Hippodrome attracts the city visitors as well. It regularly hosts horse racing and everyone has a chance of betting on a horse.
