Being non-European we enjoyed visiting this park and learning about the statues from "soviet times". It is pleasing they retained the statues and relocated them so that future generations, particularly citizens from those areas, are able to reflect on their past history. Although we found the visit quite solemn we were keen to increase our knowledge and interest in this... More

Nice place in the forest park, full with Soviet Union statues, which were removed from Lithuanian cities after Lithuania got Independence. For older people is a step back for remembering past, for younger to understand how their ancestors were forced to live and what to warship. There is an old Luna the park for the kids to play, and small... More

We ended up spending more time looking at their 'zoo' than at the soviet sculptures. I was definitely not prepared to see a whole family of bears there. Also the park is much nicer than I imagined, as it's basically a collection of old soviet statues. But there has been quite a lot of thought put into arrangement of them... More

This place is really fantastic. A lot of Soviet history (without trying to hide its autrocities), beautiful surroundings and a really good playground for children. The place is very well maintained and clean so it is a true joy to visit. We also had lunch at the restaurant and the food was very good and so was the service. There... More
