The skating rink on the Patriarch Ponds in the historical center of Moscow is really popular.  It occupies about 12 thousand square meters.   At night, the ice rink is illuminated by floodlights.

Chistye Prudy 

The ice rink is flooded spontaneously, so the ice is not always perfect. The advantages of the rink include its round-the-clock open hours, the presence of benches in the alleys where you can rest, and a small number of visitors. Not far from the rink there are many  cafes and restaurants. 

Goncharovsky park
