“One of the best romantic pathes in Yekaterinburg”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Sometimes, if I've a free time enough, I taking my wife and driving to the center of Yekaterinburg (We are live in Berezovsky). I parking my car on any side of Gogol street not far from Lenina street and walking to Plotinka. First of all we are making a circle about St. Ekaterina chapel and the square of labor fountain. Then we are going between the old water tower and monument to the city founders, down the stairs to the promenade and turn toward the Malyshev street. Slowly stroll to the bridge at the Museum of Fine Arts, go across the Iset River to the other side and turn back, but we shall not at the waterfront, and have a walk the alleys with commemorative stones. At the end we come to the waterfall dam, stand a little and stare at the falling water. Then go around the waterfall and go through the archway under Lenin Street, walk past the gazebo, sometimes go into it and stand little, after going past the house of the merchant Savost'yanova, lapidary art museum and monument to the founder of the radio Popova after crossing the street Lenin to own car. Wife after a walk says, "Oh, I was poisoned by oxygen." I recommend at least occasionally make such a walk along the river Iset and Plotinka.

“Beautiful urban park”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

It was really cold the day I went to the park. REALLY cold. But it was very much worth it. If you go to Yeketerinburg, this weir is a must. They have done a wonderful job of creating a space where ever direction you look there is a picture worth taking. The weir is only steps from downtown and I imagine it is very well visited on warm days. I hope one they open access to more of the parkland upstream from the weir.

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

A wonderful cool place to hang out especially with your loved one. I was there last year with my husband and quite liked the atmosphere. The place was not much crowded though. We enjoyed the walk on Plotinka. The main highlight is that there are many attractions nearby including Temple on the blood, Stone Parke and many more. There were many other young couples there to lock their name on the railings and then throw away the key. It was a kind of usual custom here. It was amazing. Truly one of the best places in Yekaterinburg.

“interesting if you enjoy reading about history”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

One needs to be able to appreciate the historical significance of the weir, although it's not a bad place to take a walk, weather permitting, along it, even if you care nothing about history. Once you realize the history behind it, inseparable from the history of the whole city built by Peter the Great as a gate to Asia, your appreciation rises.

“Charming and quiet”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

A charming, quiet, relaxing place right in the busy centre of the city. Turn there from crowded streets, sit at the water or walk along the weir for only 15 minutes - and you'll feel recovered...Expecially nice in summer and autumn.
