It is one of the places that should be visited in Almaty. It has so much nationalism going on because of the memorial for soldiers who died in the WW I. and II. There is also a fire burning in the middle of the monument representing the Kazakh people and their existence on that land. And Zenkov Cathedral which is... More

This park consists of several monuments to commemorate the sacrifices of Kazakhs when they were part of the USSR . Its a large park so give yourself time to walk around, preferably with a local guide to explain the different reliefs. As Kazakhstan is rediscovering its old Mongol roots while keeping a safe distance from Putin's Russia, the narrative of... More

There are two kinds of Soviet statures. Ones that say we kicked your butt and ones that say we are about to kick your butt. We met a guy who hangs out there to give the history of the soldiers depicted. He even has old soviet battle songs playing on his phone while he told us the story. Very cool

The park is set around the orthodox cathedral and a couple of museums. It's a good place to get drop by taxi to explore Almaty city. The wars monuments are a must see, vestiges of the soviets. Really nice. We were invited to drink and to cheer at a weeding in the park, very friendly people. We visited the park... More

I'll admit that I'm biased as I was born just around the corner, but I believe this is worth a visit. Air pollution in Almaty makes one crave some 'unleaded oxygen' and this is one of the few green spaces which still offers this. There is a beautiful wooden church which was built without a single metal nail. There is... More

Panfilov Park is nestled in the heart of Almaty. Worth a relaxing walk through, there are many sculptures and statues paying homage to the soldiers from past conflicts. A distinctive Russian influence with a large Orthodox church in one corner of the park. Best time to visit is in summer, sun shining with the temperature around 30 C. Winter can... More

We visited this park during little snow fall and temperature of minus 5 degree Celsius, but worth visiting as it has excellent photo opportunity. The park was named after the 28 warriors of Guards Panfilov division who sacrifice their lives in war against fascists in 1941. Visit is Recommended .

Just a great walk and must see on your way to farmers market, especially on Saturday when the park is really like an oasis in the city.
