"This doesn't feel like Moscow," is a common reaction to Russia's oldest botanical garden, founded by Peter the Great in 1706. Located in the center of the city, it's just off the eternally congested Sadovoye Koltso, or Garden Ring, which doesn't have a hint of garden about it. But the Aptekarsky Ogorod makes up for that with its winding paths, footbridges, playground, benches, and of course its trees (some are up to 300 years old), plants (among them tropical and subtropical plants in a greenhouse), and flowers (there's a spring tulip festival). And, it is incredibly, spotlessly clean. The garden is surrounded by restaurants, many, not surprisingly, with a lovely view. Admission about $2 before 6 pm and about $6 after. Aside from a discount for schoolchildren, students, and pensioners, it's one price for both Russians and foreigners.

Open 10 am to 10 pm daily, except for several weeks in April and for special events.
