This is one of my favourite places in Moscow. To come here walking with the family is a good alternative to the mad busy parks but also an education. The tropical greenhouse and cactus terrace are worth the visit

Aptekarskiy ogorod is a very beautiful small garden in the center or big city. A lot of flowers, trees, small, but interesting greenhouses with tropical trees and orchids. Couple of small cafés - one is with tasty Russian pies.

It was a pleasant experience however there were very few flowers in bloom. I enjoyed seeing the apothecary plants (e.g. digitalis, vinca minor, eucalyptus) however my friend was far less interested. An extensive garden including terrapins (turtles), fish and a greenhouse (that was closed when I visited). It is apparently part of the city's university (MGU) and the nearest Metro is Prospekt Mira. Entrance via a building that looks like a shop on road labelled on google maps as "pr-t. Mira". Cost 150 rubles for a student.

It's like an oasis right in the centre of the noisy Moscow. There is something magical about this old park cause every time i come there i forget there a noisy avenue just 2 steps away. In spring and summer it's filled with beautiful flowers. There is also a greenhouse which must be particularly enjoyable in winter. There are a few cafes and restaurants around it, but not cheap.
There is an entrance fee (discounts for students), but still very worth visiting!

One of our favorite park in Moscow. Not too big, but very cozy.
It's better to go in summer: there is a pond with fish, a lot of flowers anf different trees. In winter the most beautiful place is hothouse.
There are several cafes and pubs around parks, so you never be hungry after walk.
