  • The date starts by spending the afternoon together preparing a picnic. Make homemade sandwiches, pasta salads or anything else you and your partner prefer. Don’t forget to pack a soft blanket to sit on. As the sun sets, head to the Hermitage Garden, a beautiful park in the center of Moscow known for its romantic ambiance.
  • The garden offers an outdoor cinema experience during the summer months where you can enjoy classic and contemporary films under the starlit sky. Find a comfortable spot and set out your picnic. Enjoy your homemade dishes while waiting for the movie to begin.
  • As the movie rolls, lean back and share a romantic evening together. Savor the experience of watching a great movie, surrounded by other cinema lovers in one of the city's most beautiful parks. It’s a unique, romantic, and inexpensive date that both of you will remember.

Preparation steps:

  • To ensure the best experience, be sure to check the movie schedule ahead of time to find a film you both will enjoy. As the weather can cool off in the evening, pack a couple of blankets — one to sit on and one to snuggle under.
  • For the picnic, prepare sandwiches, salads or any other food you both love. Remember to pack it in a cooler or insulated bag to keep it fresh. Don't forget to bring a bottle of non-alcoholic wine or flavored water to set the mood.
  • Get your tickets for the outdoor cinema in advance. They sell out quickly, so it's crucial to book ahead. This date requires a bit of planning, but the special experience is worth it.

Some tips:

  • The best spot to set up your picnic in the Hermitage Garden is near the cinema screen, but not too close, so you can talk and enjoy your meal without disturbing other viewers.
  • Even though it's September and days are warm, nights can be quite cool. Dress in layers, or bring an extra sweater or coat to ensure you stay comfortable as the temperature drops after sunset.
  • Remember this night is about spending quality time together. So put away your phone, enjoy the movie, and focus on each other. However, do capture a few moments with a photo or two to remember your perfect date night.
