Lot of greenery and a park to stroll or jog in the summer evening. It is also near to the Green Market.

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.

We loved our visits here. Full of history, and welcoming too. We enjoyed watching newly married couple put flowers by a monument, and posing for photos. It was so much fun to see such happy smiles and people enjoying the day. We visited often and are so happy we did.

This is an open square flanked by impressive statuary at one end and a grand entrance gate at the other. An eternal flame burns in the centre. The whole area is surrounded by parkland and is a sensible place to stop and look for a while as part of any walking tour of the city. Would suggest that May 9... More

Citizens of Almaty pay tribute to the World War heroes here on 9th May, I visited the place this year and it was an experience to remember. People sang patriotic songs, offered roses to the war memorial and paid tributes to the living heros of the war.

I was there for the celebration of the Victory day (WWII) everybody celebrates and you can even meet former soldiers (they are very very old) and to shake their hand gives you goose skin. The monuments are beautiful.

Handy for the large green market, where fresh herbs and pistachio nuts provide the best bargains, and also close to the excellent public baths and sauna, with plentiful markers and monuments of interest including the extraordinary Soviet war monument adjacent to the equally extraordinary pink Cathedral. Take a bench, read a book, watch old men play chess and young lovers... More
