Also play in old fashion and style children playgrounds. And you just have to eat in the restourant where they have special old time menu... More

Though it's not maintained well, Grūto parkas is one of the best places to feel soviet spirit today. You can find statues, books, even clothing. It's the best way to teach young people their parents past.

We went here with children, who, thanks to God, are living in a free country. But it was exciting and educational walk through the park. We were able to show, how looked our childhood world. There is also a zoo, but it seems to me that animals have not good living conditions.

IT WAS SO HOT WHEN WE GOT HERE. With little shade but still great. I love soviet era collections of design so there was plenty of great things to photograph. Weird little zoo which i wasn't too keen on mind - family of 5 bears caged up wasn't great - also loads of birds and small mammals but i guess... More

Very interesting place where to find hardware from the U.R.S.S. era. Mainly statues and sculptures. But you can also find a reproduction of a communist culture club, trains, artillery and so on. Thereis also a zoo.

A curious attraction with fascinating statues and a different theme, there are ugly fences everywhere which somewhat spoil the appearance of the place. Why are there a load of animals here? it just doesn't fit with why you would come here. Someone needs to sort this place out and update it a bit. It made me really sad to see... More

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
