The latter is still there, so it's more than 250 years, don't miss it while visiting.
In fact this type of open outdoors activity, watching, smelling, enjoying exotic flora, is not available all year round because of changeable weather in Moscow and long cold winters. However, gardeners managed to create a unique relaxing oasis of beautiful nature in the megacity which is full of gorgeous flowers, trees of more than 2000 types. They also opened a lecture hall for nature amateurs, developed special programs for kids, have guided tours around the garden which becomes a popular place loved by Moscovites and tourists in late spring, summer and early autumn.
