  • One of the most popular parks in the city. Very nice, voznesensky Cathedral, monument to the heroes of the Panfilovcam and eternal flame near the former House officers (and now, say gay Club). Near the Cathedral in the square traditionally is grazed pigeons crowd can feed almost. In holidays like pancake Semirechye Cossacks Union there massive festivals dlvseh, very beautiful.

  • The Park is very nice, but there is a lot of parks in the world! And here's the accordionist who plays there day after day-the weather is almost always good and allows easy virtuoso. Confidently put him Conservatory! Bridal plays placed wreaths at the monument to panfilovcam and simply on request. Remember with pleasure.

  • It is a nice place for lunch time walking. It is relatively small, but well maintained. You can even see squirrels playing and feasting sometimes. Less often than before but still can. Cathedral is also here. It is quite different from traditional European Cathedrals, but it is very beautiful outside, but even better inside.
  • Nice park with a cathedral, museum, and monuments all within walking distance. Perfect for a stroll when the weather's good. Decent eateries in the area.
  • Although really nice park as a concept the lower part of it nearing Gogol St is normally full of drunks and unpleasant people. Watch out for your pockets.
  • A nice place for a walk among trees.
  • The church is nice, the park itself is so so
