  • An interesting place to go back to the past (a small excursion during Soviet times), there are places where you can eat, but nothing special there does not serve, plain food, this place several times and have always been satisfied. plenty of room to stroll outdoors in the Park is a zoo that is growing every year. If you collect in Druskininkai advise to arrive at this park.

  • About an hour and a half from Vilnius, the Park is closer to the border with Belarus and Poland that the capital of Lithuania. Is reached via a long straight road, which cuts through dense hardwood forest. The Park, which contains the statues (sometimes massive) that until just over twenty years ago symbolized the Soviet rule in Lithuanian cities, is structured on two loop trails, pleasant to go. The statues are also often accompanied by photos that depict in their previous urban locations. The two themed museums collect tons of busts, medals, furnishings for nostalgic Communists. The Grutas Park is also equipped with a mini zoo rather articulate, that will make happy children. Beyond the classic farm animals and many bird species, there are giraffes and bears. Particularly fascinating amusement park with rides from the Soviet era. Many things related to a way to have fun is always relevant, but sometimes forgotten. A small gift shop and a restaurant with typical dishes are also available. Not without reason the Grutas Park is one of the top picks in Lithuania.

  • The Park is located about 90 minutes from Vilnius. It is very interesting and impressive to see these huge statues and think that once (not even that far) were in town. You should also visit the other facilities in the Park, the home of the party and an exhibition of Soviet memorabilia. Higher the price 6 €.

  • 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.
  • Zoo is fun place but the lack of history of the statues
  • Absurd place, in a positive way. Soviet propaganda and monuments everywhere here. You should visit and reserve 2 hours for it.
