Victory Park is the largest park in Minsk. Today, it is virtually inseparable from the Komsomolsk lake, which is housed in its territory. The park was due to open on June 22, 1941, but on that same day Nazi Germany attacked the USSR.
After the war, the dam was rebuilt, which held the Komsomol Lake, as well beautiful park was laid out. They did not have to think long about the name of the park - it was given the name of long-awaited victory.
Victory Park today
To the fortieth anniversary of the Victory in WWII in 1985 at the entrance of the park the obelisk "Minsk - Hero City" was installed. Large-scale reconstruction of the park's victory began only in 2005 and in 2011, Victory Park was completely renovated.
Victory Park area increased up to 200 hectares, 40 of which are for Komsomol Lake. Around the lake was built "health-track" and equipped beach for a rest. Today, there are also and footpaths, playgrounds and a site, used for concerts and shows. During the reconstruction three fountains been installed - "Eternity", "Victory", "Sail".
Among the places in Victory Park, which is certainly worth a visit, is the Birds Island. Cross a little bridge to get to the island - a wildlife reserve - that is home to a variety of birds, including some rare species.
Currently, the park remains one of the most popular holiday destinations in Minsk.
Working side by side for 20 years, go here for a walk at lunchtime regularly. The Park began as a mother - he is very neat and tidy and yet sufficiently irregular and not very intense people, beautiful in any season. Suitable for almost all ages and categories. In recent years, however, the Park is attacked by a new crazy - lovers "Nordic walking". In the Park quite a lot of birds, recently expanding species composition, most notably an increased population of blackbirds, both black and singing.
Super location in the centre of Minsk, where without fuss or fanfare, to indulge in reflections for a leisurely walk. Beautiful views of Komsomol lake. There are places where you can sunbathe and swim.
Nice place to Walk or ride a bicycle/roller blades , with fountains, benches, riverside
The Park was created recently and well planned. A beautifully preserved nature. Very clean and lovingly well maintained. The best place for leisurely walks and for lovers of Jogging. Is the bike path.
Nice, big Park. The Park is actually very large. A great variety of interesting zakoulkam. You will need a lot of time to fully to explore. He lived near it for 2 years, and it is possible to wander where he was not. Toilets, bike paths, monuments, fountains, the Palace of independence there. Suggest!
Beautiful and picturesque view and pleasant environment, almost astonishing in the midst of the city. Love this place.
Best Park in the city. Lacking only a more pleasant promenade, on which I would like to stay.
Plenty of dark edges to hide away from curious eyes in the night.
Good sights. Recommended for tourists
Beautiful, clean, well-kept Park. There are bike lanes. Outdoor fountains. Catamarans. You can enjoy a picnic on the lawn. There are a lot of ducks. Take bread to feed them.
There is Parking, but it is a pity a little. Day off, Sunny day may not be the place.
Есть автопарковки, но жаль маленькие. В выходной, солнечный день может не оказаться места.
