Originally used to grow medicinal plants, Aptekarskiy Ogorod Botanical Garden represents the oldest botanical garden in Russia featuring ornate flowers and greenhouses. Peter the Great founded the garden in 1703 to supply a hospital with herbs and medicinal materials. Since 1805, the land has belonged to Moscow State University and its biology department.

Aptekarskiy Ogorod Botanical Garden Reviews
Какие чудесные локации! Какие запахи! К своему стыду, в прошлом году осенью впервые побывала в этом саду и жалею что раньше не была. Действительно, лучше всего побывать здесь именно весной. Такое коли... more »What a wonderful location! What smells! To my shame, last year in the autumn for the first time visited this garden and I regret that before was not. Indeed, it is best to visit here in the spring. This is the number of blooming my favorite tulips I saw for the first time and it was almost childish delight)) I loved that the plants are noticeable care
Уголок природы в центре Москвы. Весной обязателен к посещению. В этом году одновременное цветение тюльпанов, рододендронов, пионов, сирени, черемухи, магнолии, вишни, яблони и много, много, много друг... more »A corner of nature in the center of Moscow. In spring it is obligatory to visit. This year, the simultaneous flowering of tulips, rhododendrons, peony, lilac, cherry, magnolia, cherry, Apple and many, many, many other... Concerts in the conservatory, performances in the open air. Wonderful cafes, and a food court in a greenhouse building. The place is wonderful and atmospheric.
A lot of splendid flowers at the "Spring Repetition" festival (incredible colours and violet tulips smelling like chocolate!), blooming gigantic water lily, blooming Devil's tongue, vast collection of cactus and succulents. Unfortunately everything that is situated at the open air is under snow layer and maybe we should have come after 8 pm on the night tour that is 6 time cheaper (50 rubs vs 300 rubs for regular ticket).
Amazing place. Great for taking pictures, learning and seeing plants you might never see in their real habitat
