  • The park looks pretty good, but overall, worth spirit of the Soviet Union. Everything is strictly ... Many stalls that were unoccupied for several years, very old rides, peeled off the paint. But parks in Shymkent, tight, and there is no particular selection. Because the Park is popular among the local population. for tourists, afraid any value he has.

  • The Park is a great, big, cool, but a little entertainment. Another disadvantage is that little URN for garbage can, therefore, not very clean

  • A great place for a stroll. The war memorial area of the park is worth the visit. There are various festivals held in the park throughout the year.
  • Empty place, nothing interesting. More like abandoned park tbh
  • Poor maintained park, a couple of nice monuments and a big memorial.
  • You can ride bikes, etc. A lot of trees, fresh air
  • Very nice

Where to stay in Shymkent

The accommodations in Shymkent huddle together in the town center, set mainly in blocks built during the Soviet restoration of the city. These range from simpler options to luxury ones, with the latter traditionally overlooking the greener parts of town and offering a range of extra facilities, including spas, pools, and restaurants. Budget hotels sit in less attractive spots, with grittier but comfortable surroundings, free Wi-Fi, and good access to many of the main urban sites.
