You come here for the Panfilov Cathedral but the park is pleasant too. Good benches and shady areas to escape the summer heat. Not sure how pleasant it'd be in winter. A number of Soviet style statues and war machinery... some candy floss stalls etc and that's it. Some fast food outlets just opposite the park.

Come stroll this park, as many locals do. Visit the Russian Orthodox church, which is picturesque. It's a great slice of life in downtown Almaty with a metro station a five minute walk away.

A beautiful park with a powerful monument to the fallen heros. Definitely somewhere to visit if you appreciate Soviet style, angular sculptures.

This Monument is really impressive. We spent a lot of time to take photos and watch all the details.

Very nice and green park where you can take a pretty long walk, sit, relax and contemplate the sights of the city. You can see splendid Zenkov Cathedral there - the orthodox russian cathedral built without any nails!! Pretty unique. And many pigeons too😊😊 and of course war memorials.

This park is a typical and ugly soviet var memorial. Thousands of its twins are scattered all over Eastern Europe. And if you have seen one you have seen them all. Consider it as a shady and green space in the city

Nice Park with a beautiful orthodox church and soviet-style war monuments. Like a trip into the past. Must see when in Almaty.

It is nice park where one can learn about the country's history, and also see how much the people today remember their relatives who were killed in wars with lots of freshly cut flowers on the statues.

This is a view you're bound to have in each former Soviet city - a memorial to war heroes, situated in a nice park. This one, however, is one of the loved places for Almatyans in summer, spring or autumn (guess also in the winter, just haven't been there then :)) You will find a lot of young and old... More
