  • By chance decided to describe the latest excursion Park. It so happened that I often visited this park since childhood. My grandfather studied at the Institute of horticulture which is located directly behind the Park and once in 5 years, he traveled to a meeting of graduates, but also professional .... where to go after walks in the Park. By the way-side entrance of the Institute is free if the pass))) with Ogromneshaja, about 180ga, mnozhistvo ponds, fountains, a variety of flora. In summer there are catamarans, boats for rent, very I like to swim on the so-called river Styx. Fun and positive when there are. Every self-respecting ukrainets, I believe, must visit it.
