Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure Reviews
Parkta yürümeyi gezmeyi sevenler, aileler için ideal bir yer. Güzel restoranlar var içinde. Bir de lunaparkı var ama biz gittiğimizde en güzel atraksiyonlar ya bakımda idi ya da arızalıydı. Üzücü oldu... more »It is an ideal place for families who like to walk in the park. It's got some good restaurants in it. And then there's the amusement park, but when we left, the best attractions were either in maintenance or malfunctioning. It's sad, of course. I suggest you go and be especially enjoyed by your lover or child.
Лет десять не был в парке Горького. За это время произошло множество изменений и все к лучшему. Построено множество атракционов для детей, облагородились дорожки, поставлено множество статуй, красивые... more »I haven't been to Gorky Park in ten years. During this time there have been many changes and everything is for the better. A lot of attractions for children have been built, paths have been ennobled, many statues and beautiful flower beds have been put up. The cable car is functioning. Children will be delighted and adults will be happy to walk.
A great place to go! We had a wonderful day with the family, being able to walk around, get some food and drinks and it is also possible to bring your own. The attractions are pretty well priced and on week days (especially Monday) there are hardly any lines which makes it even better! The mirror labyrinth and the catapult and definitely some of the highlights! The park is free to enter and walk around in so this is for sure a place to go if you are in Kharkov.
I didn't visit this park during many years and this summer I visited it again. It changed very much. It looks modern and in the same time save some old pieces as cable car. Local people call this park "our Disney Land"
