    Very good and well kept place, decoration and wall with the names of Heroes produce the right impression, because there's only inhabitants. On return from the waterfront, see awards the city beautiful.

    I got on it accidentally, first arrived in Volgograd and decided to walk, intuitively towards the Volga. Was a day off-apparently this is one of the favorite places for exploring the townspeople, lots of greenery creates shade, benches. Kids Teens-all walk here. Well the historic sites associated with the war and Memorial monuments, signs, plaques in Volgograd at every step.
