  • Very beautiful park. Well maintained, the view is stunning. Walked without a tour guide, did a bunch of pics and got a lot of fun.

  • The park is nice, the place is good, well-groomed. But the impression of the negative remained from a walk on the underground river price of 50 uah. People, do not be fooled: there is nothing to look at, instead of claimed half hour, the walk was 8 minutes from the force, and back had to walk.
