Krylatsky hills reserve is of a man-made origin, it is created on the basis of ancient quarries with artificial slopes filled for the 1980 Olympics. In the capital there is no more diverse and picturesque area than the Krylatsky hills.

This is a miniature "mountainous country", known as the Tatar ravine. And it is considered a natural monument. There are many rare plants and geological formations in it.

At the foot of the slope, the Holy Spring is hiding, with amazingly pure and tasty  water. It is almost impossible to find such springs in Moscow now.

On the Krylatsky hills, there is a LATA TREK, a sports-ecological complex and an open area for sports and just for outdoor activities.

Moscow cyclists constantly gather  here in the summer, and in winter  time this place is occupied by skiers.

At any time of the year, many fans of extreme entertainment ride in the park. The infrastructure in the forest park zone is well developed, so it is convenient to hold sports competitions of any level, corporate events and promotions.
