Morozovsky Garden in Moscow - Russia

In the very center of the noisy metropolis, on Ivanovskaya Gorka, a quiet corner of old Moscow, the Morozovsky Garden, has been preserved. Finding it is not easy: the cozy garden is hidden from prying eyes behind a high concrete wall, and you can get inside only through an inconspicuous gate in Podkopaevsky Lane. Its history began in the 15th century - under Vasily III, the Old Gardens were noisy here. Now it bears the name of the last pre-revolutionary owners, the merchants Morozovs. At the beginning of the 21st century, their mansion was transferred to private ownership, and the new owners forbade access to the park. Only in 2011 it was opened to visitors. You might be interested in the article Moscow Cathedral Mosque.

What To Watch


Today, the Morozovsky Garden occupies an area of only half a hectare, and only its lower part is open to guests. There are many flower beds here, maples and chestnuts rise along the paths, wild grapes curl along the fence. This is an ideal place for a short walk in the fresh air: you can get around a small square in just 20 minutes. But there are no benches - there simply wasn’t enough space for them.

The garden is especially beautiful in spring, when chestnut candles bloom, red and yellow tulips dazzle in the flower beds, and only the singing of birds breaks the silence. The park is located on a small hill, so it offers a beautiful view of the Kremlin and St. John the Baptist Monastery.
