Petrovsky Park

During the war of 1812, Napoleon's headquarters was located here. At that time, the entire park occupied a huge area of 65 hectares. In order to organize such a miracle of nature here, they bought cottages and the nearby Maslov wasteland. By 1830, the park was becoming a favorite place for walking. Of course, billiard rooms, baths, coffee shops and gazebos are located throughout its territory. It was forbidden to build taverns and inns on the territory of the park, and a little later the land was sold out for aristocratic dachas. A pond was dug in the park, dams were erected, and by the beginning of the 20th century, the park became known for the first tram line that ran from it to Strastnoy Boulevard.

Today, Petrovsky Park is a park complex with an area of 22 hectares in the north-western part of Moscow. You can come here on a weekend and enjoy its freshness and beauty with pleasure. Or you can stop by for an hour or two, escape from the bustle of the capital, and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of tranquility and serenity.

The whole park consists of islands, among which there are areas densely overgrown with centuries-old trees, and bright sunny meadows with flower beds and benches. Landscape designers have tried to recreate the most diverse natural areas here. Those interested can also visit the Church of the Annunciation and the villa of collector and antique dealer Nikolai Pavlovich Ryabushinsky “Black Swan”, where you can see a portrait of the poet Valery Bryusov by Mikhail Vrubel. Next to the park stands the magnificent [Petrovsky Travelling Palace] (https://kudago.com/msk/place/petrovskij-putevoj-dvorec/), built in the second half of the 18th century.

Not far from Petrovsky Park, just a couple of metro stops, you can continue your walk in Druzhby Park or at the famous Bulgakov [Patriarch's Ponds] ( https://kudago.com/msk/place/patriarshie-prudy/).
