  • For me, as for the person who loves history, this park is a very interesting place. Really feel the atmosphere of this tragic place, even eyes the tears when you see monuments on which so emotionally transferred to the pain and suffering people. Place well kept everywhere. Good idea with the monuments that are different facts with pictures of war and further history of the place. Also in the depths of the Park opens a wonderful view of the city.

  • So many people were killed here. The place is overflowed by sorrow memory of buried here. Visit and keep the memory. Never again. 
  • Every time I visit this place overwhelms contradicting feelings. On the one hand, this is a very beautiful and well kept place in which you want to return again and again for its peace and quiet. On the other hand, is a scary place, where many people were killed just because they are not like they should.
