- Evening falls over Moscow, and your date begins in a mysterious way as you guide your significant other to embark on a sightseeing tour without revealing the final destination. You enjoy the mesmerising sight of Moscow's famous landmarks, such as the Saint Basil's Cathedral and the Kremlin, glow enchantingly under the evening sky.
- As the twilight deepens, you surprise your date with a cosy picnic spot in a scenic location, with the twinkling city lights as your backdrop. You pull out a blanket, some traditional Russian snacks and drinks, and end the tour with a quiet and intimate picnic under the stars.
- Through the evening you share stories, laugh, and create beautiful moments to cherish, making it a truly memorable date.
- Firstly, scope out the perfect picnic spot ahead of time. Gorky Park offers beautiful views and open spaces perfect for an evening picnic.
- Prepare a basket filled with traditional Russian snacks such as pirozhki (small stuffed buns), blinis (thin pancakes), and Russian chocolates. Don't forget a thermos with hot tea or coffee, or even a bottle of wine, to enjoy as the evening falls.
- Make sure to check the weather in advance. An ideal date would be on a clear September night, when the weather is not too cold and stars are visible in the sky. Don't forget a warm blanket!
- Remember to dress accordingly, as September evenings in Moscow can be chilly. Bring an extra jacket or blanket to keep warm during the picnic.
- Check if filming at the sightseeing places is allowed or if there are any restrictions in advance. Surprise your partner even more by capturing your memorable moments in a short video or photo collage.
- Lastly, respect the environment and make sure to leave no trace. Pack up all your belongings and take any litter with you to keep the park clean.
