Worse than average park, the memorial is... big and the Panfilovs story is... surprising. You can either watch changing the guards and thats more or less everything you can see here.

This is one of the best war memorials I have been in. The park itself is in great condition, and the monument is very impressive. The Kazak Soldiers (all with anti-tank grenades held in hand) are figuratively guarding the wall of Moscow. Surrounding the central memorial statue, there are several other memorials including one for the Soviet Soldiers who fought... More

This is a memorial devoted to the heroes of WW2. It is located in the city park and describes the heroism of soviet soldiers protecting Moscow. It is a nice walk around the monument, and you can learn a lot about local culture.

We walked across the park from the National Museum of Musical Instruments to visit the External Flame/War Memorial and Zenkov Cathedral. This park was an unexpected delight with well tended flowers and trees in abundance. It is quite worthy of a more leisurely walk!

It's worth a visit. Well layer out park, plenty of places to sit and enjoy it's beauty. The memorial to 28 Guardsman is evocative, full of strength and courage.

This park has lots of things to see. Check out the 100 year old Russian Orthodox all wooden church or the Soviet Union war memorial...or just walk the paths of the park and soak it all in. Just a beautiful park and lots to see and experience.

We loved to stroll thru Panfilov Park to cool down from Almaty summer heat. A great place to watch locals late afternoon and to explore its war memorial places. Kids will enjoy plenty of play option. An amazing park in the very green Almaty city.

calm. I love walking through Panfilov Park. It's calm and relaxing. The Orthodox church always makes a nice stop, especially when there's a service and you can hear the choir. The 28 Soldier memorial is extraordinary as well. Worth checking out while you are visiting Almaty.

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.
