First of all - 6 Euro it's defo to much for it. It's a park full of sculptures -Stalin and Co. - and animals (zebras, alpacas....). For me not a great thing.

Definitely weird: not just heroic statues but the owner's personal menagerie - alpacas and Stalin are a pretty bizarre combination, there's a small exhibition of devil and witch images for good measure, AND a kiddies' playground. There's also a huge collection of Misha-the-Bear (mascot of the 1980 Moscow Olympics) collectibles , suggesting that EVERYTHING associated with the USSR is risible.... More

I wouldn't go out of your way to see this, but if you happen to be near Druskininkai, it is certainly worth a small detour. A huge collection of soviet era statues.

Interesting place to see, very different than others. Don't know any park similar to this. It's all about Russian society Union, exhibition of monuments used to be all around Lithuanian cities when country was occupied by Russia. I was not very interested but my mum and aunt were really exited, everything remind their childhood. So recommend to everyone over 40s.

This attraction has to be on every traveler's "MUST VISIT" list. The attraction is situated in Grutas, a village right before Druskininkai. The park boasts a nice collection of Soviet sculptures, WWII machinery as well as the indoor exhibition of Soviet items like paintings, books. The attraction has a Souvenir shop as well as the "Soviet" restaurant, where you can... More

Gruto parkas is a unique place in eastern Europe to see all symbols of communism. All status are providing insights of how was the life during the soviet time. There is also the possibility to order traditional food and drinks. So far, I've been 5 times in the park and it's always interesting to see it.

From the moment the surly ticket kiosk attendant allows your admission to the park, to when you're face-to-face with a seven foot emu within the suspicious eyesight from the park's security guard you're instantly immersed into the wonderful world of Soviet Lithuania. If you visit in January, the snowfall and crunch of powder beneath your feet is beautifully accompanied by... More
