Pro Anta’s is a private greenhouse. It’s a small tropical space, created by Anna Golubeva – scientific editor of the Russian edition of the book “Urban Jungle” and a great lover of plants. I especially like that this project is a private initiative of an enthusiast.
I saw a photo of Pro Anta’s on my Instagram feed and fell in love with it at first sight! I’ve been coming here since. I come alone or with my friends to breathe in the tropical air, take inspirational photos, chat with the spacekeeper about plant care and choose new plants for my house. Sometimes, me & my friends bring coffee with us (there is no coffee shop in this space), sit down at a table and chat. And here I regularly meet interesting people!
The space works on a schedule which may change slightly every week. You can always find the current schedule in the stories of its Instagram account. I advise you to look up how to get there: the space is in the building of former factory, so it may be difficult for you to navigate.
Visiting it is free. Renting a photo zone costs 600 rubles/hour (you can rent it for 10 minutes if you want, but it’s better to do it beforehand). There is a zone for master classes, which can also be rented.
It’s a small space, not like the Tauride glasshouse or the Botanical glasshouses. Every plant breathes the love of its creator, so I like to visit it.
