History through art

Impressive war memorials and statues. Colourful Orthodox cathedral. Nice to stroll around and get a feel for an Almaty Sunday morning.

Very nice park to walk around in Spring. Close to the Green Bazar and a variety of museums. Don't forget visiting the church in the park.

Nothing special, but worth a short visit, if you are around. Take a look in the church and the memorial.

This park commemorates the valiant efforts of heroes of the "Great Patriotic War," aka WWII. It is a pleasant place to stroll and take photos of the Soviet era statue, the eternal flame and the cathedral. There was a military parade rehearsal when we visited this latest time.

The beautiful floral artistry that adorned the vast expanse of this park is worth seeing. For this it is necessary to come in summer. In winter though, the "white leaves of the trees are something to send someone into meditation. The heroes memorial has a larger than life affect, that draws you into the feelings and experiences of those heroes.... More

Good place to visit while in Almaty, the cathedral is located there along to the eternal flame honoring the war hereos. The president park is better I believe in terms of bigger size, and a wider variety of trees, and plants and a place away from the city.

This park is a great place to spend a quiet, sunny afternoon. The war heroes memorial and eternal flame offer a solemn place for reflection. People still leave flowers at the site, which is a touching gesture of respect. The beautiful tall trees provide a buffer against the noise and bustle of the city, and offers the park visitor some...
