  • The second time was in the Park after more than 20 years after the first. The overall impression is bad. Since can compare with memories of childhood. Around the Park end-to-end rose private mansions with not less than 2-storey buildings, near the lift towers worth Multistorey apartment house, poskudnel Park vegetation and animal life, the impression that the Park otkusyvali as far as they could, Yes, that is felt in the Park take care of what is part of it, but don't see the development. With kantaki-residential house spoils panorama sea view (was highlight of the Park), with Earth-Windows and the roofs of the houses which stand back-to-back in the Park, the Park of the territories without development (under the impression that they are prepared to alienation under mansions), animals and fish, and little too cylindrical Aquarium is available to all visitors, now made payable. Alas, the Park already does not return TU zest that was before.

  • Visited the Park in August 2016 ... overall everything. I would like to recommend comfortable shoes and clothes for a walk in the Park. the territory is big enough, the hilly landscape (that the mountain, then the mountain!), so get ready for a good endurance! I met in the Park at least four hours and it is virtually without breaks to rest and so on! Large, beautiful green area of the Park does not leave anyone indifferent, especially us people from the North, where the flora present birches, spruces, pines, Yes! I think that visiting Sochi need necessarily Park, once is enough! 250r price (for adults).

  • Amazing corner of tropical nature! An interesting visit as excursion or independently, and at any time of the year! There is no fuss and cloying. If you get to the top of the point (by foot or by cable car), offers stunning views of the sea and Sochi.
