Victory Park, Minsk

(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
At Victory Park, walk along the shore of a lake complete with sculptures and fountains that commemorate victory over the Nazis. The park was due to open on June 22, 1941, but on that same day Nazi Germany attacked the USSR. Notice the obelisk at the entrance dedicated to Minsk's heroes. See the victory fountain, which has 53 granite elements representing the number of divisions that liberated Minsk. Attractions include a beach, bicycle trails, a health trail, and a children’s playground. Cross a little bridge to get to a bird island--a wildlife reserve--that is home to a variety of birds, including some rare species.

  • Minsk is full of great parks, but the best has to be Victory Park. It is huge and very peaceful. It will take many visits to get around all of it. It's not wasted time.  more »
  • Covers a large territory (area of approximately 200 ha). Start Foundation-1940. The Grand opening was set for June 22, 1941 It did not take place. Was opened in 1945. and named in honor of the victory. In the Park Pobedy: komsomolskoe Lake, Bird Island, an island of nature, the river Svisloch, Obelisk "Minsk-Hero City", Museum of the great patriotic war, war aircraft, fountains, bridges, benches, and pedestrian paths for cyclists. Playgrounds are few. Those that have seen not very saturated with elements for children's games and entertainment. Notice that the Park has many of those engaged in mobile sports: running, Nordic walking, bike. On the shores of Lake sitting fishermen. On the Lake swam duck and Swan. On the branches of trees with leaves pretty yet twittering birds. Probably coming to rest here better when warm and green, are already working fountains by camping in this park for a long time (with a visit to the Museum).
