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. Put Gorky Central Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Minsk online driving holiday planner.

  • Good park (not too big) near the city center. There are attractions and little shops, as well as toilets. There is also a panoramic wheel.
  • One can hardly call the park a barrier-free environment for people with disabilities. Many paths actually lead to a dead end, as it is very difficult to overcome steps for wheelchair users. The constructed concrete high-rise office building has cut off the view of the beautiful part of the city, so from the park it remains only to enjoy the view of the numerous windows on the opposite bank of the river.
