  • One of the main tourist areas in the center of Almaty. This park has a lot of different attractions and memorials. There is a wooden Orthodox Christian Cathedral that dates back to before the Soviet Union, a memorial to World War II and other wars that Kazakhstani people fought in, hip restaurants and clubs, shopping nearby, and more. During winter there is an area to iceskate for free, and there are usually horses around for rides and carriage rides. The history and beauty of this park is not one to miss.
  • Great park. Calm and cozy. In autumn you can contemplate golden leaves of high trees.
