This large park once sat in the city's outskirts, but now is in its very center.
As well as peace and quiet, it also offers activities such as boat rides on a small lake surrounded by luscious willow trees. (8 lev for 30 min.)
The same lake turns into an ice-skating rink in winter. There are tennis courts, 2 stadiums and a large open-air swimming pool, which is in dire need of renovation.
Monuments of various shapes and sizes are neatly arranged along the alleys in the park and almost rival the trees in their number. The largest monument is dedicated to the Russian army and is worth a look.
Bars and beer stands are also everywhere, so the visitor is in no danger of remaining thirsty.
The park is accessible 24/7 and the alleys closer to the entrance are well lit and more populated. Further away, the park turns into an urban forest.
If for whatever reason you choose to go there after dark, stay on well-lit alleys and exercise reasonable caution.
