This place gives you goose bumps. We had a guide with us who explained the story of the 28 soldiers who stopped Hitler's army from seizing Moscow While the story may have been exaggerated this structure is not. It is very real and you feel the energy of the moment. Spend some time here and get transported to 1941 !!

Statues commemorating WWII contributions as well as the Bolshevik revolution. Interesting to see from an American perspective.

The Park named after Panfilov's 28 Guardsmen is a very nice park commemorating the 28 Guardsmen who defended Moscow by killing German soldiers and their tanks. They were regarded as heroes throughout the USSR. The actual statue is very large and looks down upon the eternal flame. As you face the statue, you see the eternal flame in the middle... More

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.

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.
