SIGHTS

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art £

(garagemca.org; ul Krymsky val9/32)

The brainchild of art fairy Darya Zhukova, Garage is one of the capital's hottest modern-art venues. In mid-2015 the museum moved to spectacular new digs in Gorky Park - a derelict Soviet-era building, renovated by visionary Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas. It hosts exhibitions, films and interactive programs featuring Russian and international artists.

Hermitage Gardens

(mosgorsad.ru; ul Karetny Ryad 3)

All the things that have improved Moscow parks no end in recent years fill this charming garden to the brim. Today, it is possibly the city's most happening place, where art, food and crafts festivals, and concerts, occur almost weekly, especially in summer.
