Five places in Moscow to guide Cupid’s arrow

When you live in a big, gloomy megapolis like Moscow, one of the things that can help you get through this drab existence is romance. Either big cities don’t have it by default or it’s hard for us to notice it in our constant motion between these concrete whoppers…

Anyway, we’ve managed to find a few spots that you should visit with your beloved that will surely inspire deep romantic moments.

Let’s get started!

Silver Heart in Hermitage Garden


This is the newest place in the list. It was created in 2006, but was quick to become famous.

It replicates the heart that was drawn by Romeo on the house of Juliet, probably the world’s most familiar lovers. Just make a wish and pass through it. Love will come to you before you know it.

Address:: ul. Karetnyy Ryad, д. 3, Moskva, 127006

Luzhkov Bridge


The Luzhkov Bridge would likely be your first destination if you happen to marry in Moscow. For many years, newlyweds have hung locks on it and thrown the keys into the Moscow River.

In 2007, there was a threat of collapse because of the amount of locks. To prevent this catastrophe, the first “Love Tree” was installed. There are many of them there now, waiting for you and yours.

Address:: Luzhkov Bridge

The Rotunda in Neskuchny Garden


Originally, it was built for Moscow’s 800th birthday but soon received a new purpose.

You should write your name and the name of your crush on a piece of paper and bury it near the rotunda. The person you mentioned will respond to your feelings soon after, or so they say.

Address:: Neskuchny Garden

Bolshaya Sadovaya, 10


This location became famous after Bulgakov’s novel, “Master and Margarita.” The fictional character Voland lived in the building that resides there. Now, you’ll find the Bulgakov museum in its place and the entrance where Voland’s apartment was located became very special. You can write your love wish on the wall and it will most definitely come true!

Address:: Bolshaya Sadovaya, 10

Bohdan Khmelnytskyi Bridge


The bridge was initially called Krasnoluzhsky, however people always knew it as the Bridge of Kisses. The name speaks for itself – kiss your beloved one while you are there, and your kiss will last for the rest of your life.

Address:: Bohdan Khmelnytskyi Bridge
