Get an interesting view of WW2 from the perspective of the USSR. Remember to book an english speaking guide, and bring your own toilet paper for the toilets.. :D

This is a war museum based on the Russian army old equipment. There is a high tension between Ukrain and Russia and the Ukrains suffer a lot during the war in 2012-2014.

If you are into war history, this is a must see! This park is filled with tanks, planes, weapons, artillery, uniforms and lots of other war memorabilia. I loved having the opportunity to sit in a MiG and a Soviet military helicopter used in Afghanistan! I wish there was at least one tank open so one can go inside but... More

Inside are several rooms with different themed exhibits. Almost everything is written in Cyrillic, but there are laminated sheets in English at the entrance of each... More

Very very nice park and the exhibition is throughout the park. Quite a lot Army vehicles that kids can hop on. Very good views of the river and the city. Well taken care of. Clean. Redicilous fee to enter the airforce old jets.
