On the Seven Hills

The Seven hills of Moscow (by analogy with Rome) – is rather a beautiful legend than a historically reliable characteristic of the terrain. Borovitsky hill, Tverskoy, Vagankovsky, Tagansky, Sretensky, Trehgorny, Lefortovo, Vorobyovy mountains and several other hills form the silhouette of Moscow. There is no consensus so far about which hills should be considered the principal. Therefore, the layout of the garden is not an exact copy of the map of Moscow. In general, the garden "On the seven hills" is an exceptionally imaginative solution, a view from a height at a primeval terrain with green hills with birches and pine trees, covered in verdure.

The structure of the garden is simple and logical. The hills are interspersed with plant fillings (catnips, sage, grasses, hydrangeas, mountain pines). The recreation areas are represented by semi-circular benches that naturally fit into the terrain.
