Been wanting to visit here for a while,finally I made it and was quite impressed. The entrance fee was cheap,and well worth it,Stalin world is a bit wrong as there's more Lenin statues, you can walk up to the statues and take your selfies(if you must). It's all in a mushroom farmers back garden,he paid for it all himself,and it's... More

Our international family visited the park some years ago and spent a very nice day in the Soviet past reality. The park has a rich exposition nicely arranged in the beautiful nature. Especially recommended for the young people who do not know much about the Soviet times. Our son-in-law was very much interested in military weapon exposition. For me the... More

Very interesting trip to the past. Ticket is not expensive, and the tour is quite long. All the statues from all the main cities of Lithuania during the communist occupation are shown, and also the small zoo offered to the visitors is worth to see. Definetely advised.

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.
