Mariinsky Park, Kiev

4.6
#4 of 25 in Parks in Kiev
Facing the Supreme Council of Ukraine, Mariinsky Park features historical monuments, entertainment venues, and spacious lavish gardens. Dating back to 1874, the park has grown to 10.7 hectares (26.4 acres) and today features remnants from the past as well as contemporary icons. Here you'll see an ornamental fountain from 1900 built in cast iron just steps away from a futuristic water museum that demonstrates water cycles. While strolling along the winding paths, watch for the tall international friendship monument. You can also visit the oldest puppet theater in the country here. It's a local tradition to come to the park's famous bridge and tie a ribbon or hang a lock in the name of love.

    Mariinsky Park is located about 15 minutes from the Maidan in the beautiful district, close to the Parliament. Enjoy stunning views of the other side of the Dnieper River and the river itself. Especially I recommend on a hot day. Many walkers, cosy atmosphere

    It's a very lovely place in Kiev. Definitely must see for anyone who is in Kiev. Fountains make this park even a better sight!  more »

    Walking, relax there simply great! The Palace is very beautiful. Fountains are unusual. Recommend to everyone! Only toilets have long look))) (with children it was not convenient).
