  • The Park hides many secrets (included in tree planted by former Spanish President Aznar), and the history of the square and its monuments is very curious. I would recommend to visit with a local guide to not miss a thing.

  • 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!
  • Fine place to relax. There a lot of pigeons and some squirrels. There are bike ways and many benches.
  • It's a great and beautiful park....at panfilov park the the Ascension cathedral is a wonderful piece of architecture...this is a beautiful church to look at...may be it can be described as it is a typical example of Russian architecture.......as of the park this is named after Russian General Ivan panfilov and under his leadership the great 28 soldiers sacrificed their lives to resist the Nazi force and to protect Moscow.....thus this panfilov park is directly related to the rich history of world war 2.....
