As of Jan 2014, substantial part of Mariinskiy park continues to be the place of the mass gatherings of pro-authorities' marchers. The lower part of the park (atop of Dynamo stadium) is adjacent to where the latest unrests take place.

The park has sadly lost much of its charm and should better be avoided at the moment, till the situation settles down.

It will be very amazing when the renovation will be finished. The park as itself is really very cozy. But the Mariinsky palace is closed, it is under construction and will be opened only in 2015...It was very sad, that we could not see it.

This has been and I hope, will be in the future, a very beautiful attraction. Presidential palace is there but currently the paint is chipping, the gardens are all over grown and unattended and there is a big green fence around it so you can only see in through the palace gates. No telling how long it will be before it's repaired. (repairs and building take forever here). When it's done, It will be a very lovely place to go and if it had been as nice when I last saw it as it has been in the past, I would have given it a 5. Visiting Kiev is like visiting wonderland.

The park is very large and very beautiful. A nice place for a stroll and relaxation. The most interesting thing is a dilapidated palace built on the orders of Peter the Great's daughter Elizabeth. It is behind locked gates with a guard. Our guide said that the city is always promising to restore it, but it never happens.
