Western District

Disposition Gagarin district and district Ramenki where the Sparrow Hills, walking is not too successful. Since there are many enclosed arrays. But right and left of the building of Moscow State University is a small park with a pond. And in front of the University of the Moscow River is a platform with the busts of celebrities and benches. Nearby is an observation deck overlooking the Luzhniki Stadium. You can walk down by the Moscow River. Or to pass along the waterfront to the Frunze bridge, near which is located Neskuchniy garden. Or go the other way, to Krasnokoluzhskomu bridge. But the first option is more interesting.

Poklonnaya Hill - a huge outdoor area, as well as a small park. Convenient place for roller skating. Landmarks: Arc de Triomphe, the complex of buildings in the center, an old steam locomotive and some of what military equipment (guns, vehicles), fountains before the stele, which are beautifully lit at night. And yet, as a symbol of peaceful co-existence of religions - the church, a mosque and a synagogue.

Filevsky park and Suvorov park - two of the park is actually a large park, for some reason divided into two on the map. Walk there pleasant. The main attraction - a long promenade along the Moscow River to the crest of the channel. The park and promenade - a rather quiet place on weekdays.

Near Subway Pionerskaja of Suvorov park has a big pretty nice Pioneer Pond. Also in the Suvorov Military Park is a small pond.

With Krylatsky hills with beautiful views overlooking the Moskva River and located next door, a rowing canal, where you can during the warmer months to see the training of rowers, if you go in the morning when the sun does not bake much, or in cloudy weather. Can also be there and walk. True, the terrain is hilly, so if you walk, it's better in the lowlands.

Northwestern District

Silver Bor (Metro Polezhaevskaya, October field) - Forest Park with beaches and interesting system of ponds with lots of bridges. Some beaches are paid, but only in summer, when it is hot and crowded. In the autumn you can walk everywhere for free. A little less - is pretty far from the subway. If you walk from the subway or Polezhaevskaya October field, then at least half an hour. But they go trolleys and buses. In the summer, especially on weekends, the beach is almost completely covered with the bodies (in shorts and no panties (there is a nudist beach).

Shchukin peninsula (another name - Stroginsky bucket) - Peninsula have Stroginskaya bridge. On the contrary Shchukino located on the waterfront, sandy beach. Further, opposite the Silver Boron also has a beach. Once it is clear he was paid, and now abandoned. Old abandoned buildings, rusted iron umbrellas.

A word of advice. If you go down the path and see that began thicket, do not climb further, hoping to find again the path. Get lost in a jiffy.

Pokrovskoye-Glebovo - a nice park. On its eastern border (along the railroad) is a series of ponds on the shores of which are planted evergreen trees. Forest Park pretty well maintained. There are many different paths, there are wide avenues.Near the river Khimki in the north-western border of the forest park is often possible to observe all the people with canisters to the spring source. Also near Khimki is a ravine with a fairly steep hills.
