Morozovsky Garden

A miniature square in the heart of Kitay-gorod


This garden of only half a hectare has been hidden among the historic buildings of Ivanovsky Hill for three centuries. The house with a small park ensemble has constantly changed hands and was named after the last owners — the Morozov merchant family. In the 19th century, the editorial office of the magazine Russian Gazette was located nearby, so the garden was frequented by illustrious writers like Ostrovsky, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoy.

Thanks to its elevated location, the Morozovsky Garden offers a unique view of Kitay-Gorod and Zamoskvorechye. The entrance to the garden is easy to miss: it is hidden behind an inconspicuous gate in Khokhlovsky Lane. There are no benches or other pieces of park architecture, but it is one of the few green islands in the district, so it is very popular with local residents. Keep in mind that access to the manor house is closed, and the garden is only open in the daytime.
