This park is located at the center of the city. A medium sized park with a historical chuch and a monument about second world war. This churh and the monument must be seen. Also there are some different (outdoor) activities for small children.

Amazing sculpture, captures the spirits of immense sacrifice, struggle and perseverance. Read the names on the cubes that line the central path too. Some died very young.

I am amazed by the sculptures. They are huge and very powerful. The park is sandwiched between the military history museum, musical instrument museum and the very colorfully domed cultural center/church.

This park is a lovely walk through history. Many memorials to Kazakhs who served (probably conscripted) during the various wars. They are proud of their history. The imposing soviet style sculpture of warriors from Russia, KZ, etc. was very intimidating, but fascinating. Local musicians played...More
