    Beautiful sculptures, well-maintained park
    This was an amazing park with monuments to the Kazakhs lost in war over the past 100 years. Most (perhaps all) monuments do not have English translations. I looked up a bit of the history on each online. Beautiful sculptures, though, and so close to many other tourist hotspots. Don't neglect to buy a bag of birdseed to feed the pigeons in the park's central square.

    A beautiful park to wander through
    The Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen incorporates the Glory Memorial and Ascension Cathedral The park has many pathways to wander and lots of well established trees. I imagine this park has its own beauty in every season. When the weather is really hot, the shade from the trees will provide a welcome relief. My visit was in Autumn. There were still flowers and although some of the trees were changing colour, many of the trees are evergreens, providing a really pretty environment. These trees are home to some rather friendly and cute looking squirrels. There are also horse and carriage rides that be taken around the park and safe areas for children to play. It’s a lovely park, with a really nice vibe

    A must visit place in Almaty
    A must visit park. Its quiet a large park with ample of sitting benches around. The giant size monuments commemorating the fallen of the World War is just breathtaking. Ascension Cathedral is also inside this park, It was completed in 1907, the cathedral is made out of wood but without nails and is claimed to be the world second tallest wooden church. The park also has many squirrel's and they actually come very near to you and take the nuts from your palm, its a wonderful experience.

This park honours 28 martyrs of Kazakhstan. They died so others could live peacefully. The memorial monument is very nice, as is the park. The autumn colours were beautiful. In some very shaded areas, the sunlight on the leaves, made them look like lanterns.

A historical area in the middle of the city, named after Panfilov who defended Moscow from German army during the Second World War. Memorial of 28 guardsmen is closed to eternal flame, old church and Museum of musical instruments.

Panfilov’s monument rests in Almaty as he spent time in garrison and battle in the region during his military career.

The park and monuments list the major cities that saw siege and battle during the incomparably devastating Second World War, so something common with Soviet memorials and monuments to the war, but this one seemed more personal despite the out-of-geography placement. Panfilov, after all, is infamous for his instructions to his men—Moscow is behind us, there is nowhere to retreat. He and his small band of men remained to face the Wehrmacht’s onslaught when other formations had fled. These men slowed the Nazi advance and gave courage to others to return to face their enemies.

If you are a fan of Soviet sculpted memorials you can't miss this one. Together with an eternal flame it's a must see.

The structure is huge and there are a few other smaller monuments dedicated to WW2 around this area. This is probably the most impressive monument to Panfilov I have seen in Kazakhstan. If you are heading here from the cathedral you face the back of the monument, so when turning to see the structure the size of it can be truly appreciated.
