  • Having seen a few clips of the Grutas statues on TV, I was expecting them to be concentrated in a small area, but in fact, you have to walk quite a distance to see them all, which I would recommend. Y...  more »
  • The park is very sweet and worth a visit. The statues are amazing to see and very powerful. The information on communism is not very accurate (many of the plaques contradict each other). It is definat...  more »

  • Very interesting park in beautiful settings. Lovely walk looking at old USSR art that was removed from the whole country after independence. The cafeteria is also worth a stop. Here you will find old dishes from Soviet times, served with "theme" bowls. The combination of smoked Sprats (fish), raw onions and a glass of vodka is certainly unusual. For kids they have a small private zoo and a very good play area.
  • Very nice place to spend time with family. Good zoo. Price is not friendly enough.
  • A wonderful 2-3 hours attraction for the whole family.It's not just a bunch of old soviet statues. It's a whole historic route laid down in a park with a small zoo and swings for children.Light walk in the park will lead you through the real soviet epocha, you will feel it in the air. And when you get tired- a soviet style restaurant with waiters- pioneers is waiting for you.
  • One of the most controversial places I have ever visited. There are many monuments dedicated to people, who fought for what they thought was righteous, but it turned out that they were on the wrong side of history. In Austria, where I live, we usually refer to the Red Army as well as to the Americans or British as those who put an end to the "brown plague" of nazism and brought freedom from it to the Europe. This park tells the different story about the Soviets. Lithuanians saw them as villaneous as the nazis or Armia Krajowa, for they wanted nothing else but freedom and independence, which resulted in rapes and plundering by the Red Army in Lithuania. Fortunately, now Lithuania has removed the statues of those who supported the crimes from the streets and moved them here, so that the younger generation remembers what was happening during that time and always keeps in mind, that every glorious story has its own dark side. So impressed!
  • If you're in the area definitely worth visiting, still I am not sure about the concept. While you get a good impression about sovjet reign and terror 45-91, there is some improvement potential regarding the historical comments, at least in English. Furthermore, I don't really understand, why there needs to be a Zoo with Emus, Lamas, four Brownbears, etc. attached. Makes me wonder.. Disappointing though that the souvenirs shop was closed.
