Part children's playground, part zoo, part Soviet Statue Park. Weird. I'll focus on the Statue Park. Dozens and dozens of Soviet era statues, importantly with inscriptions and info on them. Done in a tasteful, informative way rather than a celebratory way. Worth visiting but I just have the feeling it could have been so much more. The entrance wall is... More

I like history. If you like history too, Gruto parkas is a must. While visiting I felt like I back in the USSR. It has so many exhibits from so many cities. Also the music from that time helps you to feel the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Interesting place to visit if you are in the area. From someone who never visited during communist times it is a interesting insight in to how things looked in those days. In addition to the statues taken from all over the country these is also a cafe which has traditional food of the times, all of this is also set... More

If your are near, you have to come and feel the soviet soul. They have also a restaurant where you can try soviet times food.

We took a private tour with Baltic Saitas (who we'd highly recommend) to Grutas Park from Vilnius. It was nice to see more of the country, and the park itself was awesome - nearly 100 Soviet statues ranging from smallish busts to 6 metre tall Lenins. It is in a drained swamp, surrounded by Gulag watchtowers playing strangely hypnotic chipper... More

Seriously - what a place! A display of statuary purchased by the local businessman, Viliumas Malinauskas, is spread over twenty hectares of beautifully forested countryside. However, the 86 works of art aren't your regular sculptures; they're all soviet era grand depictions of the heroes of the pre-1990s totalitarian regime which had governed the entire USSR, including Lithuania with an iron...

Yes, the Soviet statuary is unique -- and extraordinary in many ways -- but we could have done without the animal park atmosphere. Stalin was a brutal murderer. Probably one of the worst in the history of man. But...to see little Stalin head key chains for sale was, to my way of thinking, making light of a very serous era... More

This museum of communism is located in wood near Druskinikat. There is a lot of monuments and other relics and souvenirs from the time of Soviet Union. There is also a mini ZOO with bears and a playground.

Even if you are not to much into politics, you would like this place if you like the nature - all of the statues are greatly incorporated in a forest, but yet there is a perfect footpath to get around and maintain your shoes dry. Of course, you need an umbrella or a poncho in case it rains, as there... More
