  Patriach's Pond

For those who have read The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov they will reognise the place name from the opening lines of the book where we first meet the characters.

'One hot evening, just as the sun was going down, two men appeared at Patriach's Ponds.'

The area previously belonged to the Orthodox Church and this is where the name came from. Within the gardens there is a statue of Krylov, a poet from the 19th century.

Address: Malaya Bronnaya Ulitsa
