The park hotel is focused on family holidays with children or a wellness raid with friends. Inexpensive rooms, buffet meals, a large selection of entertainment, animations and to top it off a spa with swimming pool. So briefly we can characterize “Vozdvizhenskoye”.

You can take a bicycle or electric scooter, a backpack with a change, a bottle of wine and a favorite gadget. After relaxing by bike, you can get to Serpukhov and visit the sights, and then, again by train, return to Moscow.

Pine trees sway, birds sing, pony rides children along the path.

Sergey writes a review: “Good place! Repair and general execution of course not “luxury”, but quite decent. But low prices – do not overpay for warm outdoor pools and extras. services that you don’t use. The choice of food is not huge, but delicious. In the evening a cozy restaurant with excellent food and reasonable prices. Clean rooms with high ceilings. I liked the ponds with ducks, a small beach with sand. Good animation: well “started” people, there were contests and drawings. Large “game” in a separate building. Lots of activities for children: slides, playground, games room.”

Buffets & Restaurants

“All inclusive” in “Vozdvizhensky” involves the concept of four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. It turns out much cheaper than eating in a restaurant.

“Delo” writes a review: “the choice of dishes is huge. From lean vegetarian to meat delights. A large selection of soups – all delicious and rich. Of the meat dishes, I liked it – a pork roll with egg and meat meatballs steamed with fried potato slices, generously sprinkled with rosemary.
