People who like to wander around Moscow’s city center might have noticed the unattended little park in the Kitay-gorod neighbourhood some years ago. It’s located in the Bolshoi Spasoglinischevsky side-street, when crossing the neighbourhood going from the Solyanka street to the Maroseyka, or vice versa. Quite recently, the game changed, and now everyone can enjoy this super trendy place for having fun or just relaxing in the city center.
Its charm lies first of all in its atmosphere. Actually, this little park was created to be a space for uniting different kinds of people, including those living nearby. It’s equally made for elderly people and for children, for those who love partying; for people who love to sit reflecting, for sports persons, and for photo lovers.
The main thing about this park, which is by the way called ‘Gorka’ — ‘little hill’ in Russian — and correlates with the title of Gorky park, is the fact it was renovated by an initiative of local inhabitants. Now, the space has stairs for those who love reading, fountains, a playground, and a unique charm which, as many say, is a little reminiscent of Brooklyn. You should absolutely have your croissant with coffee when walking by, just because of its soul and spirit.
