“Don't go if you can't skate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012 via mobile

Great place for view & fresh air but be warned if your a beginner skater don't go as there's nothing to hold onto & the staff will ask you why are you here if you can't skate, take care this is no shopping mall with an ice rink kids!

“Fresh and healthy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Better to go in early morning. Very fresh and healthy air, I like forests and firs. The rink opens for skating since october through march. In summer you can get inside and rent a bycicle or rollers. Good place for visiting with children. From there possible to take a car to Shymbulak (30-40 minutes in one side), and to watch the Dam and gathering pond on your way.
Dislikes: bad movement of transport, especially in evenings and holidays. Sometimes impossible to leave - no buses, no taxi.

“medeu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Medeu is have to be our proud!
Last year there were a reconstraction, however the level of it not so good. In any case good ice cover, big stadium, open air - all that you need for a good weekend with your family, friends.
During many years I went there every weekend!
