Lefortovo Park

Nicknamed “Versailles” during Empress Anna Ivanovna’s reign, it was used as a model for the parks of future tsar capital: Saint Petersburg. Of Dutch inspiration, the park never stopped evolving throughout its history. It now stretches on an 80 acres area. Yauza River that flows through it, allowed for many ponds and canals to be built.
