Today’s designers and architects have transformed Moscow’s parks and now each of them has its own distinctive face. Once common green areas, now they are culture clusters offering master classes, lectures, sports events, art galleries and children’s centers.
Moscow offers a variety of options for outdoors sporting activities. The capital is actively developing a network of bicycle paths and running clubs for training in the parks. You can snow ski on open slopes or in a year-round indoor complex without leaving the city.
