I wasn't expecting much of this park as I've seen others in the past which were over-rated. However, I highly recommend a visit here. There are over 50 sculptures/structures of varying types - serious, comical, avant garde, etc. and even if you're not into sculptures, you'll still find something here you like. For kids and adults. I felt it was... More

If you are visiting Donetsk you can have a look in this park. In the evening, especially in spring or summer or early autumn the atmosphere is great. Interesting to visit as couple.

This is an outstanding combination of Art and Park. Donetsk has lovely parks anyway, but this is a real treat. There are many Forged Figures representing Euro 2012, Fairy Tales, popular literature and pure whimsy. Children and adults will have a great time here and really enjoy a trip to the park. I understand that the figures are updated and... More

When I and my friends visited this park we were amazed by its beauty. You can find here your favourite fairy-tale characters the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz for example, or see the reductions of the most famous attractions in the world, such as Big Ben and Eiffel Tower. All of the figures are finely crafted, every small detail... More

It is not just a park. It is an open-air blacksmith's art museum. We started off our leisure afternoon here and then walk down the main Artema Street for all other tourist spots along it. There is a Kebab right on the side (Mira Ave.) of the park . Only UAH15 for a delicious Kebab and people are queuing up... More

Unique out-of-doors park, with the wonderful forged figures. Every forged sculpture surprisingly passes appearances of fairy-tale heroes that actually very difficult to express in a metal. On my opinion, it succeeded all of authors simply of genius! New sculptures appears every year. This year appeared the sculpture from Georgian diaspora. Shocking place! Arrive and look!

It is a very interesting little park not far from the center of the city. It is constantly being updated with new forged figures, and is definitely one of the more interesting photo-taking places. On a nice afternoon take a stroll through the many paths and see the themed areas of the park - they have figures from fairytales, football... More

You can get here by going to the intersection of prospect mir and ulitsa universitetskaia. http://pkf.donbass.name/ This is a nice way to spend the afternoon or early evening. Lots of pathways with metal figures that depict lots of different things like characters from Russian fairytales, soccer things, and world sites. Very beautiful in the fall!
