14 February 2020
River Overlook is one of the most romantic places in Moscow where you can take selfies on Valentine's Day according to the selection of the most interesting locations by Moscow Committee for Tourism. We’ve decided to expand this list and offer you the top 5 most romantic places in the park, where lovers can make great selfies.
1. River Overlook
We deservedly put it in the first place. River Overlook is called that way because it seems to “hang” in the air, inviting you to romantic walks. From the observation deck, the historical center of the city and the park itself are perfectly visible. Great pictures are obtained there both during the day and in the evening when the view of night Moscow opens. The bridge is 245 meters long, it is able to withstand a load of more than 240 tons, and this is almost 2000 couples in love!
2. Birch Grove
Here you can forget that you are in a metropolis and take a walk among the birches. The herbage cover of the birch grove is made up of creeping thyme, northern hawkweed and other herbs. Through birches, a view of Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin opens. Lovers are crazy about this place!
3. Glass Crust
This place is comfortable for plants even in winter! We already shared photos of how primrose blossomed here in December and January. It’s cozy here for couples in love too. Under the Glass Crust, you can warm yourself in the cold season, enjoy panoramic views of the park, the Kremlin and the Patriarchal Compound.
4. Ice Cave
Hundreds of people come to Zaryadye to see the mysterious Ice Cave and take unusual photos in the background of arches and columns covered with ice crystals. Now the Cave is closed for planned maintenance, but from April it will open for new visitors.
Variety of plants, flowers and fruits! Here you can feel yourself on another planet. In the greenhouse you can see how strawberries bear fruit, as well as spicy herbs, coffee and even exotic papaya grow. Your "space" photos in Florarium will surely get a lot of likes.
