Over the years we have been here several times love this place. In the summer they hold concerts in the middle of the park and it is quite wonderful

I adore the arboretum. It's a great place to take a walk and clear your head, and there are plenty of benches and secluded spots where you can contemplate or read. I love how the arboretum is sectioned based on regions of the world, and...More

If you visit Moscow you must seethe Arboretum! So beautiful in every season! Love it in the fall, gorgeous in the spring, stunning during snowy winters, and the best place for a picnic in the summer. You can’t miss it!
