  • In the second world war, Russian troops were about to be blown out against German troops. For the sake of unity that the deaths of 28 to pass of karnail Singh was that they won and the direction of the war Russia through time had changed. This very beautiful monuments in the Park to commemorate the soldiers who died.

  • Very Green Park in downtown. Worth a visit, but not 9 may, and it is not protolkneshsja. There are many things to do and chess play with their equals, and monuments to see and eat.

  • Beautiful park drowning in lush greenery. It is well maintained and cared for. Nice place to escape to from busy streets of the city. Unfortunately, the orthodox cathedral was under reconstruction when I visited. The museum of musical instruments adjecent to the park is highly recommended.
  • Very beautiful. Near Green bazaar market. But it is preparing this period. Do not open.
  • It is AMAZING!! So powerful! One of the most beautiful monument sites that I ever saw. It just fills you up with fighting spirit and pride, even if you not Russian or Soviet. Stuning!
  • Very nice, all green and lush in the amidst the city, teeming with people relaxing and strolling during the days, dining and cafés in the night...
  • I liked. Very nice park. For taking cool air it is better in Almaty
