Add to favorites
  • The evening begins as you and your partner meet at the banks of the Moskva River, a captivating underscore to the beauty of Moscow.
  • You begin your leisurely stroll, soaking in the colorful facades of the city, the riverside bars and cafes, and most importantly, each other's company. As the sun starts to set, the familiar cityscape acquires a golden hue, offering a wonderful backdrop for a romantic selfie or two.
  • To cap off the lovely walk, find a quaint spot near the river where you'll prepare a simple dinner. The shared task of cooking under the stars heightens the romance while also offering a fun, collaborative experience.

Preparation steps:

  • For this date, simplicity is key. A comfortable attire that suits the weather is recommended. Bring along a picnic blanket and a portable camping stove if you have one. Also pack ingredients for a simple, light meal. You could consider pasta salad, sandwiches, or grilled skewers. And don't forget a bottle of wine!
  • You might want to check the weather forecast and sunset timings to sync your stroll perfectly. Lastly, remember to respect the area and clean up after your picnic to leave the space pristine for other visitors.
  • While the general route of the walk is along the Moskva River, planning a specific path, with special points of interest, could make the evening more memorable. A possible route could be from the iconic Gorky Park to the historic Sparrow Hills.

Some tips:

  • As this date includes a decent bit of walking, make sure both you and your partner are comfortable with the idea. Perhaps pack a pair of comfortable shoes.
  • When planning your meal, consider your partner's dietary restrictions. Plan a menu that both of you can savor and enjoy.
  • Lastly, though this date is aimed at offering a relaxed, unhurried experience, maintaining a basic schedule can ensure you're at the river when the light is just right. Remember, the sunset won't wait for you, so it's a good idea to be on time!
