Reserves and urban forests in Moscow


Apart from concrete buildings and modern entertainment, there are a lot of green areas in Moscow where you can enjoy the beauty of nature. These places are in demand in any time of year and are suitable for families with children and for romantic dates, intellectual hangouts or friends meetings.

"Losiny Ostrov" National Park

The largest national park in Europe that lies within the city limits is located in Moscow and is called "Losiny Ostrov" (literally – Moose Island). Its area is about 12,000 hectares. Moose, axis deer, wild boars, squirrels, muskrats, beavers and minks live in this urban forest. A total of 44 species of mammals, 170 species of birds, 9 species of amphibians, 5 species of reptiles and 19 species of fish. The park offers visitors the opportunity to see moose, the largest mammals in the Moscow region, in their natural habitat.

"Tsaritsyno" Museum-Reserve

"Tsaritsyno" museum-reserve is located in the southern part of Moscow. In 2007, its restoration was finally completed. Grand and Small Palaces, Khlebny Dom (Bread House) and Opera House, gazebos, outdoor pavilions, cavalry corps, operating temple, greenhouses and arches, as well as figured bridges can be found within the territory of the imperial residence of Catherine the Great. Walking through the picturesque park, everyone can enjoy marvelous landscapes: a musical fountain, pseudo-Gothic style buildings and pond cascades.

"Kolomenskoye" Museum-Reserve

"Kolomenskoye" museum-reserve is located in Moscow and stretches over 390 hectares. It includes four historic areas: the former village of Kolomenskoye with the Tsar’s Courtyard complex, Museum of Wooden Architecture, ancient gardens and parks; landmarks on the grounds of the "Izmailovo" estate; "Lefortovo" Palace and Park; as well as natural and historical complex of Nikolay Durasov’s estate in Liublino. It is impossible to walk through this vast area in one day.

"Kuskovo" Estate

"Kuskovo" estate is a unique cultural monument of the 18th century. Back then, Count Sheremetev used to be the owner of this country house where numerous theatrical festivities and large receptions were held. Over 20 unique architectural monuments (Kuskovo Palace, the Big Stone Orangery, the Grotto, an old church, etc.) survived to the present day on the grounds of the former estate. There is also a park with marble sculptures, pavilions and ponds which is the only French park in Moscow.
