Gorky Park Tours

20 reviews
Named after Russian author Maxim Gorky, Gorky Park is Moscow’s most famous park, covering 300 acres along the Moskva River near the center of the city. Opened in 1928, it was the first park of its kind in Russia and served as a model for other parks throughout the country. During Soviet times, it was a center of activity for Moscow residents, featuring roller-coasters, a Ferris wheel and other western-style carnival rides, as well as more formal gardens and woodlands.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the park fell into disrepair, but has been completely reconstructed in recent years. Old amusement park rides have been cleared away to make room for a more eco-friendly recreational area. Today, the park features contemporary art displays, new cafes and an open air cinema. Lounge chairs and pillow-shaped bean bags welcome those looking for a little relaxation and free wi-fi is available throughout. Visitors can participate in activities such as aerobics, yoga or salsa dancing classes. In the winter months, a 15,000 square-meter ice rink opens with separate areas for children, dancing, hockey and ice skating.

Practical Info

The best way to reach Gorky Park is to take the Metro to the Park Kultury station. From there, cross the Moskva River on Krymsky bridge and the entrance will be on the right.
