Moscow Flower Festival
Today marks the start of the annual Moscow Flower Festival. This festival showcases the very best flowers of the season in Muzeon Park. Entrants to the festival are not just from Russia, but in fact all over Europe!
Visitors are welcomed to look around the displays and attend educational seminars and information sessions on how to improve their own garden, whether that is on an apartment balcony, or a large landscaped garden. The event will be family friendly, with a number of workshops aimed at children and their parents, to encourage them to garden together.
Everyday of the festival will have a theme including the Day of the Rose on 5th July and the Day of Family, Love and Fidelity on 8th July.
