Парк Победы/Victory Park
I am on a quest to see as many new parks (or “old” ones with “new” fall foliage) as I can before it gets too cold out. To that end yesterday and today I visited new parks! =) Yesterday was Парк Победы (Park Pobedy/Victory Park in English. Победы means “victory”) and today was Сокольники/Sokolniki. Moscow has THE best parks and I am loving them! I think the only park that I haven’t been amazed by is ВДНХ.
Park Pobedy is right near the metro of the same name, so it’s super easy to get to. Thankfully despite lots of dark, low-lying clouds, I didn’t get rained on! Score one for yesterday. Today, despite the forecast of no rain, it rained. But only a little. So I am still thankful. This is Russia. It could have poured. Counting my blessings.
Anyways, here are some pics from yesterday’s quick walk through Park Pobedy (had I had more time I could have spent MUCH more time there. I think I only scratched the surface as far as seeing all it had to offer.)
