  • Start your date with a leisure stroll, beginning at the breathtaking St. Basil's Cathedral. Relish this enrapturing visual treat together. After that, head over to the tranquil gardens of Alexandrovsky Sad, a beautiful and often overlooked part of the city. Lastly, end your day at the iconic Red Square as the lights go up, adding the perfect romantic glow to a day well spent.
  • Not only does this arrangement provide an assortment of experiences, but it allows ample space for you to stop, rest, and chat along the journey. This slow-paced experience is especially suitable for Ilyukha, given his preference for lazy days.
  • The free nature of the event will keep any stress about costs at bay while focusing on the romance and unique surprises at each of the locations. It's an effortless way of keeping the sparks alive.

Preparation steps:

  • Research a bit about these places beforehand to be able to surprise Ilyukha with interesting tidbits and history about the locations. You may want to decide the places you will rest and chat during your stroll.
  • Prepare a small backpack with water, snacks, and maybe a blanket you can sit on when needed. Always remember, it’s better to be prepared than to have to prematurely end the stroll due to thirst, hunger or fatigue.
  • While it's a free activity, check the weather forecast ahead and decide accordingly if you need to carry umbrellas or hats. Given it’s September, a light jacket may also be useful if you're strolling in the evenings.

Some tips:

  • Surprise dates are all about the element of surprise. So, even though you'll be visiting public spaces, try not to disclose the surprise until you reach each spot.
  • While strolls are leisurely, it can also sometimes be physically challenging, make sure to check in with Ilyukha regularly. After all, the date is supposed to be a treat, not a marathon.
  • Lastly, remember to take plenty of pictures for memories. But don’t let the act of taking pictures distract you from enjoying the moment first-hand. The date is about the journey, not the destination.
