  • Garden in the city centre, at the entrance monument M.i.glinka, and received its current official name is garden of Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka. After the war the Park brought a bronze sculpture of a deer and two lions taken as booty from the cottages one of the leaders of the Third Reich, Hermann Göring. The Park is a good place for walking, there is a shop with souvenirs, cafés "Russian yard"

  • Lopatinsky garden liked a lot more Bologna. Bologna is small, it is unclear that it do, is that going along the paths. Maybe because we were already in the twilight. Yes, there is a trophy Deer and lions and beautiful in the Center, next to the restaurant, Russian courtyard fountain. In addition to the highlighted tracks near the restaurant, rated monument Glinka, native of Smolensk, which is facing the Philharmonic across the street from him. Apartments Administrator told that every hour in exactly at the monument to the Glinka music of Glinka) anywhere else about this is not heard and not read, but 7:00 pm we really heard the music. In the park itself also in the evening, played music, and next was opened and the hockey rink, as we understand it, it's free, if without rolling. In General, the Park purely for walks, in my opinion.

  • Garden Blone in Smolensk is one of the most visited places in the city. His love of both locals and visitors to the city. In the word "blone» it seems to something French. At first glance, why not? Was same Smolensk conquered by the French in 1812 year. Though short-lived stayed beneath them. In the 17th century almost half a century — under Poland. And even earlier — in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. But no, not from here went "blone. And in general there is nothing French. According to the dictionary, "blone, Bologna is the closest circle of the city; suburb, Sloboda, outskirts, obapole. In Smolensk and Pskov oblasts there are villages called Zabolone, Abolone. In Moscow and Kaluga oblasts encountered city with the name of Obolensk. The military dictionary Tuchkova says that "Bologna"-an old Russian word which means open space in front of the fortress or city for free shooting with trees or walls. Another version is that the word "blone" comes from the Polish word "Bologna" ("Bologna") is a lowland meadow place, zalivaemoe water. It says that in Poland there is a town of Błonie (Błonie), one of the parks in Krakow is called the Błonia Park. Perhaps, in the name of the garden combines all three values. Once open marshy meadow turned into a parade ground, and then in the shaded secular Park.
