Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Central Russia / Moscow / Patriarch's Pond
Stroll down pathways shaded by trees at Patriarch's Pond, immortalized by writer Mikhail Bulgakov in his world-famous novel "The Master and Margarita." Look for the road sign that says "Do not talk to strangers," showing the silhouettes of the novel's devil and his henchmen. The pond, surrounded by a wide path with benches, also features a boathouse made of stone. You can see statues of Bulgakov and Ivan Krylov, a 19th-century Russian children's writer, near the pond. Have a drink at the cafe Margarita, another reference to the famous novel. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Moscow holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Patriarch's Pond and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Sometimes you need to stay positive and do not think that someone just passes by. Have some good food if you have money. Drinks here are expensive as well. The best place to enjoy life.

Lovely Place in the heart of Moscow. Hip crowd of people, enjoying life - at least in summer. Not big, but such a magnet for people with dogs, lovers in their own love bubble, future Instagram stars posing and many more.
I guess I was expecting more. It was more or less a retaining pond with a nice building on one side and a couple of swans swimming. It's surrounded on the other three sides by a tiny park. We were there very early in the morning so everything was closed, but it looked like there were some nice restaurants in the area.
