#2 of 8 in Theme Parks in Belarus
Stroll under the canopy of trees at Gorky Central Park, the oldest park in Minsk, dating back to 1800. During Soviet times, the park changed its name from the Governor’s Gardens to the "park of culture and recreation after A.M. Gorky," a famous Soviet writer. Rent a rowboat or paddle on the river which runs through the park. Have a snack at one of several cafeterias on the bank. Attractions include an amusement park, an observatory with a planetarium, and an ice skating rink. A 56 m (184 ft) high Ferris wheel offers a broad view of the city.

  • It is near Victory Square. I just happened to pass by and stumbled upon May Day celebrations. A truly brilliant cultural experience and all free, although the skateboarder did perform for tips.  more »
  • Nice Park, I like it. Big, there is a quay. Lots of souvenirs and sweet cotton. There's a planetarium inside. I advise you to go there. The park is located in Victory Square Metro station.
