Why Visit Zarydye Park in Moscow

Welcome to a new Russian place of wonder, glorious Zaryadye Park. Located right in Moscow's heart near the famous Kremin, this new tourist attraction can definitely compete for attention with the famous Red Square. Although it's a relatively new addition to the city's landscape, it is already one of Moscow's most popular spots among locals and tourists alike, included in the 2018 list of the World's Greatest Places by the Time magazine.

Apart from the fantastic location, Zaryadye Park's architects are also something to brag about. The incredible team included the Diller Scofidio + Renfro design studio, known as the creators of the Blur Building in Switzerland and the ones who designed the longest green roof in the world, adorning New York.

Offering unparalleled opportunities for taking some simply stunning photos in the Russian capital (with places like the Red Square on the backdrop), Zaryadye is for sure among the "must-visit" places to add to any Moscow tour. And there's no way you will be disappointed!

Inside the Zarydye Park in Moscow

The park has 4 climates zones with unique flora and many amazing things to explore on the territory, such as the famous Zaryadye Park Bridge that stands (practically "floats") without any support as if by magic. The bridge actually serves as an observation deck and is among the top points of interest to place on your Moscow itinerary.

Not impressed by bridges? Not a problem, you can move on to the non-melting Arctic glacier cave, check out the unusual Cupola, and visit the underground Archaeological Museum. Also, the stylish Philharmonic Concert Hall, which was built on a hill, deserves stopping by as, fairly, this imposing glass-roof building is one of the gems of the scenic landscape park.

All in all, make sure to add Zaryadye Park to your Moscow travel plans, as you certainly can't miss out on this unique location of the capital, which can easily become a highlight of your stay.
