With the Zenkov Cathedral, the Memorial Park and the Museum of Musical Instruments located in the park, it is possible to spend quite some time here, as many local residents do.

A communist spot not worth visiting. The well-renowned church looked old and decrepit. The place was not kept up. Worth walking through if you are in the area, though.

Great architecture, great people watching. In the heart of Almaty, where families and couples go to spend a nice afternoon together. Do not miss it!

The WWII Memorial is moving, and the park was nicely maintained. Plenty of shade, and lots to look at, or just people watch.

Panfilov park is 3 things: very moving war memorials (Russian civili war, The Great Patriotic War and the Soviet Afghan war) as well as a rather lovely Russian Orthodox Cathedral). On the weekends the park has a lot going on for young children: donkey rides etc.
