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.

It is really very nice area with lots of good cafes and restaurants around. You can come here, have a walk around the pond and then relax and chill in one of the nice cafes more »
A beautiful pond surrounded by green lawn and walking path. Lot of benches to sit and relax. Spent some time here to relax and refresh. Can spend upto 30-45 minutes. more »
This place is relly beautiful and calm. It is absolutely recommendable for romance at night and for meditation and solitude during the day. A simple moment in any day with a walk around this spot may be just enough to boost your mood.
Nice lake, small but charming. It has alot of meaning for the Russian history and literature so don't wonder seeing people with books open. Great to seat and rest.
