Serebryany Bor

Serebryany Bor (Silver Pinewood) is a pine forest in the west of Moscow, one of Muscovites' favourite recreation destination. There is this explanation about where the name of the forest came from. They say that the pines took on a certain cold, tremulous silver hue in the bright sun at sunrise. Serebryany Bor is ideal for biking in summer, and skiing in winter. In hot weather swimming is also an option: there are well-equipped beaches along the river.
