Had a great afternoon strolling through this picturesque park in the snow. You can watch local children toboggan and see the numerous women out with prams. Good for wintry photography too. Recommended.

Not very well known or advsertised, so yet free of annoying crowds, fast food kiosks etc. Amazing place with its own athmosphere and lots of small cozy corners, couple of pools, comfy benches.

It's unfortunate that this place is not very know to foreigners! It's very beautiful, and has a lot of things from both imperial and soviet Russia. If possible, find a knowing person (or a tour guide - I don't know if there are tours available)...More

Living as expat now; live near this park. Wonderful place. In summer, filled to brim with sun bathers and artists, children and performers. In the fall, quite spectacular are the colors. I recommend this park for any day to relax and enjoy.
