Losiny Ostrov is a national park in Russia . It is located in the Moscow Oblast, partly in Moscow . Losiny Ostrov covers an area of 116 km2, of which almost 31 km2 are directly in the city of Moscow . The park is divided into three parts: one is strictly protected and inaccessible, the other has limited access on marked routes, and the third serves as a recreational area fully accessible to the public. Losiny Ostrov was established in 1983, at the places where the tsars and the aristocracy used to go hunting. The first mention of the area is from the 14th century. As early as 1799, Losiny Ostrov became a protected area. Later in 1979, it was declared a nature reserve. Losiny Ostrov is covered mainly by mixed forest, mostly spruce, birch and lime trees. The eastern part is dominated by pines. The park is a home to over 40 species of rare mammals - especially in the strictly protected part. You might encounter moose, deers, wild boars, ermines, minks and beavers.
