This 360-hectare park belonging to the Russian Academy of Sciences can be enjoyed in all seasons. In autumn, when the leaves are changing colours, it's worth the extra thirty rubles to visit the Japanese garden towards the rear of the park. Several Japanese-style pavilions give you a place to view the surrounding tranquility of the garden's rock-bridges and ponds. In the late spring, don't miss the blooming of the rose garden, which contains thousands of different species. In colder months, the snow-covered oak grove and the dendraium's tree-lined paths make quite enjoyable promenades. But if you're looking to escape the Russian winter for a few hours, the garden's glass-covered orangery, which houses many tropical and sub-tropical plants, is open all year round. To get to the park, exit the metro and walk straight and to your right until you hit an iron fence. Keep the fence to your left and in about seven minutes you'll hit the front gate.
