Here, you'll find tributes to Russian heroes, the 2nd tallest wooden building in the world, a museum of musical instruments, and a bevy of bridal parties taking their pictures in front of the massive sculpture and the stairs. It's a lovely shaded respite from the warm streets of Almaty.

Initially I felt intimidated by the giant statue dwarfing this U-shaped area. It shows an indomitable soldier launching forth into battle and has a suggestion of light to it. In the "wings" are figureheads from the past with clear ethnic features that illustrate the complex history of this region. The eternal flame is at the end of an extremely long... More

A fresh green lung in the city. Beautiful flowers and trees with an amazing aroma of pine. If you are a business trip take 30 minutes to relax unwind and refresh at this beautiful park. The memorislsnd sculptures were imposing without being heavy duty Soviet.

Beautiful to walk through during spring or fall season. The tributes to the 28 Panfilov Heroes is rather artistic and interesting. The gardens are nice and there is a lovely church near by. Recommended!

A very nice park in Almaty. If the weather is good it's the best place to spend time on weekend or on holidays. You can find there a lot of historical monuments and buildings.

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.

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

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
