#2 of 78 in Parks in Kazakhstan
Centering around a dramatic monument, Park Named After Panfilov’s 28 Guardsmen commemorates an infantry unit of 28 soldiers who bravely fought the Nazis near Moscow during World War II. Lead by Ivan Panfilov, the guardsmen from all 15 Soviet republics significantly delayed the advance of German soldiers and tanks, despite a high number of casualties. Notice the black monument's eternal flame, burning for the fallen troops of both the Russian Civil War and the Great Patriotic War. Relax on the benches and enjoy the park's verdant ambience. Nearby attractions include a museum of musical instruments and a cathedral made entirely of wood.

  • 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...
