  • The Park is interesting not only for its location and green plantings. Note during the walk that goes across the center of the alley, where trees alternate with memorable stones. If you know their history, then honestly, is filled with a special meaning. Here, for example, Stella named arrow 4-th company 2 battalion 5th infantry regiment 1075 316-th Infantry Division Dmitry Mitrofanovicha Kalenika. In the premium sheet and on the monument is written as Kalejnikov. Among grandchildren surname generally transformed into Kolennikovy.

With the surname Dobrobabin, a commemorative stone in the Park No.

  • 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
