The Park was officially opened in summer 2021 and created by russian architect Alexander Brodsky in the art-estate Veretyevo. Besides natural landscape, wooden contractions and authentic thickets, there is a library and a bar – both situated in the Park. Art expert Anna Narinskaya curated a special book compilation for the Park with literature andou art, history, architecture and culture. Therefore, any visitor might come up with the right book and find a peaceful and secluded spot in the Park to enjoy reading. For those, who prefer a more entertaining process of perceiving nature, there is a bar with special drinks and cocktails created by the architect Brodsky together with restaurateur Yuri Gnatyuk.

Veretyevo Park is an homage to classical Russian manors which are famous not only for their architecture but also for its magnificent parks. However, in this particular case Veretyevo Park is more likely to be an irony – the Park turns out to be a swamp, the safe and esthetic one, but still a swamp.
