Mariinsky Park, Kiev

#4 of 25 in Parks in Kiev
Nature / Park
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. Put Mariinsky Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kiev trip itinerary builder.
