“January is not the best time for it...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

... but I'm sure that nothing will change there during the high season, except crowds of tourists, trying to do something and relax in russian style. There are a lot of shops offering you some challenges (like shooting or fishing games), very loud music and noises. The prices for souvenirs and food are higher because of this location.

Still it is possible to find a nice and quiet place, to see different soviet style nice sculptures and arts.

However after today's walk around this park and long promenade through Sochi, we realized the percentage of empty pomposity and huge revaluation in this city.

“A funfair in a park of trees and flowers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

We walked through it most days during our holiday, either going to the beach or returning to our hotel. There is a wide variety of restaurants, theme-park rides, sidestalls and hustlers. All good fun and catering for all ages.
