This vast, overgrown park is quite far from the center of town, and is fairly lifeless for much of the year given Moscow's climate. In season, however, the flowers are often unusual and breathtaking. Outside the chief displays, the park is rather overgrown and labyrinthine, but it's still a lovely place for a stroll, bike ride, or picnic. Since they're so far off the main track, the gardens are worth visiting only if the weather's clear, or if you're visiting the adjacent All-Russian Exhibition Center. Wear good shoes.
