Izmailovsky Park

Moscow, Russia


Nika Bohdan

In 1931 a bigger part of the Izmailovo forest was given for a massive recreation area, and thus Izmailovsky Recreation Park was created. Until 1961 it used to bear the name of Joseph Stalin. Nowadays it is one of the largest parks in Moscow. There you will find amusements such as a racetrack, a shooting range, merry-go-rounds and a Ferris wheel, as well as boat and sports equipment rental and a riding club. Nearby you will find the Serebryano-Vinogradny pond (Silver-Grape pond) with an island. On that island, there is the 17th century Pokrovosky Cathedral and the Izmailovsky hospital built in 1839. Recently the renovations started, and now you can go boating, play football and sunbathe on a sandy beach. And several times a week, there are yoga classes on a wooden stage that is 15 minutes walk away from the entrance.
