a nice pond and garden in the center of the city

The area is a beautiful area in the center of the city where you can walk, do some sports, have a picnic, relax. There are a lot of restaurants in the vicinity.

This is a nice area for walking around, situated right in the heart of the city. Lovely fountain both during day and at night when lit up in a variety of colours. Lots going on around you, including music and some interesting monuments/artifacts to look at and explore.

Now, over the summer time, the dancing fountains are in full gear. It's beautiful and the music is pleasing. Great to relax on one of the benches by the river or walk by. It's located right in the center of the city, and all the major sight are within a walking distance, so don't miss it out.

A beautiful place in Yekaterinburg, it gives a good view of the city and it is a favorite spot to go for a stroll on a Sunday afternoon. From there you can walk to severaL other places which are worth to visit.Restaurants are close by and the food is good if you like the local cuisine.

A beautiful and tranquil park with lots of scenery surrounding a calm and clean lake. A promenade leads one around the lake from the statues of the founders of Yekaterinburg to the Dynamo Sport Club where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch for about $12 dollars for two people. A bargain in any language.

Stroll along the river and have a rest at this area during weekend. Along the way you will see people basking, youngster enjoying their time with their skateboard, bmx or rollerblade. You will also see hips of padlocks attached on fence and bridges. The artistic value on the wall is also not to be missed.

It was really cold the day I went to the park. REALLY cold. But it was very much worth it. If you go to Yeketerinburg, this weir is a must. They have done a wonderful job of creating a space where ever direction you look there is a picture worth taking. The weir is only steps from downtown and I... More

A wonderful cool place to hang out especially with your loved one. I was there last year with my husband and quite liked the atmosphere. The place was not much crowded though. We enjoyed the walk on Plotinka. The main highlight is that there are many attractions nearby including Temple on the blood, Stone Parke and many more. There were... More

One needs to be able to appreciate the historical significance of the weir, although it's not a bad place to take a walk, weather permitting, along it, even if you care nothing about history. Once you realize the history behind it, inseparable from the history of the whole city built by Peter the Great as a gate to Asia, your... More
