Nice park centrally located part of the city, pleasant for walking around when the weather is good. Close to the Rosy Jane pub which itself is worth visiting if only to see the "warning sign" on the road outside (see picture).......who says Russians don't have a sense of humour!!

This is a really nice place to hang out or relax in the summer. And it's centrally located downtown. I would recommend it if you're in the area.

It is not best place in Russia, but it is very nice for relax. It is cool in summer, you can just walk around or sit on bench and enjoy atmosphere.

It is a nice spot in the center of the city. You can hire a kayak /boat or just relax sitting and watching the view.

In the evening they have a combined fountain, music and light show which you might want to sit down and enjoy after a day of sightseeing. In midsummer it is at daytime way to hot and no shadowplace to be found nearby

Treat yourself to an ice cream from one of the vendors, and sit down to enjoy the view, especially on a warm sunny day. Russian ice cream is... More
