  • Nice Park with fountains, statues and tenechkom. Lacking only the ice or chajhanshhikov. Пустовато, but it is even good. Beautiful mountain views on the city. A beautiful place.

  • Very impressive monument, I cant really compare it to anything that I've previously seen. It really shows PRIDE Turkmen People take in their history. 
  • Constantly in the evening come here with family for walks in the Park. The location is simply excellent. All recommend!
