Lose yourself in Patriarch Ponds
Patriarshiye Prudy is a residential area in the center of Moscow, and one of the main settings of Mikhail Bulgakov’s famous novel “The Master and Margarita”. Hide from buzz of nearby Tverskaya Street and take a lazy stroll along the pond. In the afternoon, observe groups of young people, who fill up the benches, sing and play guitars. Afterward, lose yourself in the maze of small streets, and the moment you feel tired, just hop over to one of the numerous lining hip bars and cozy cafes.
Address: Patriarshiye Prudy, between Metro Mayakovskaya and Pushkinskaya
A classy date at the movies
If you want to spend time together without the added pressure of making deep conversation, or you’re simply in the mood for some lovey-dovey, go to the movies. 35mm is one of Moscow’s most storied cinemas and one of the best art houses, screening artistic and independent films in original versions with Russian subtitles. A super cozy atmosphere, small auditorium and no popcorn at the cafe are cinema’s indisputable advantages.

Eat in the dark
This is an unusual romantic place in Moscow. Above all, a date should be memorable and, if nothing else, dinner at “V temnote?!” guarantees a meal you’ll never forget. The restaurant’s name means “In the dark” and diners eat in a complete darkness, having a chance to experience food and their partners from another perspective, free from preconceptions based on visual cues. Blind staff will guide you and help you feel comfortable, and blind musicians will make the atmosphere and the mood of the place truly special.

Take a relaxed walk in Hermitage Garden
Although located in the center of Moscow, Hermitage is less noisy than other Moscow parks. It’s rather small, with cozy atmosphere, small cafes, pretty flower gardens, romantic gazebos, and welcoming lawns, perfect for a picnic just for two. And the recently built heart-shaped monument where lovers can make a wish, transformed Hermitage into one of the most iconic dating spots. In the summer, Hermitage hosts numerous theater and music festivals, and in the winter, there’s a beautifully illuminated ice skating ring. A perfect place for a date all year round.
