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

A charming, quiet, relaxing place right in the busy centre of the city. Turn there from crowded streets, sit at the water or walk along the weir for only 15 minutes - and you'll feel recovered...Expecially nice in summer and autumn.

Every city needs a central spot and this is Ekaterinburg's. It has space, history, romance, potential and is a great meeting spot. True no loo.
