Fun & Games
Stroll under the canopy of trees at Gorky Park, the oldest park in Minsk, dating back to 1800. During Soviet times, the park changed its name from the Governor’s Gardens to the "park of culture and recreation after A.M. Gorky," a famous Soviet writer. Rent a rowboat or paddle on the river which runs through the park. Have a snack at one of several cafeterias on the bank. Attractions include an amusement park, an observatory with a planetarium, and an ice skating rink. A 56 m (184 ft) high Ferris wheel offers a broad view of the city. Plan your visit to Gorky Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Minsk itinerary builder.

  • The park is nice and quiet in the morning. If you happen to live nearby, take a morning jog or an evening walk. Otherwise the park is quite poor and has nothing to offer. The attractions for kids are ...  more »
  • The river running through it doesn't look very nice ! It's pleasant enough to get out of the summer sun under the shade of the trees ... But it's nothing to write home about.  more »

  • Interesting place to hang out and different occations celebarated here.
  • The best part there is nature. It's a wonderful place to walk alone or with friends in any season. And the squirrels are so cute there!
  • Warning : A very strange looking squirrel with bizarre hair lives inside this park
  • Just go for a walk. After a good run have ice cream and drinks. Good place for running.
  • Beautiful peaceful place, but not much attractions
