St. Petersburg Parks: Victory Park
November 8, 2019 15:37


Victory Park (Russian: Park Pobedy)

This park is situated closer to the city centre - in Moskovsky city district.

Victory Park was founded in 1945 and is a historical monument: its territory contains a memorial complex dedicated to the victims of the war, as well as a chapel.

The numerous ponds of the park are distinguished by their fancy shapes and also tell about the hard times for the country - all the pits of the ponds were formerly funnels from exploding shells.

  • Activities that are available in the Victory Park include:
  • Having a picnic on the grass.
  • Playing badminton or throwing frisbee.
  • Renting a rowing boat and going along the ponds.
  • Visiting the attractions - the Ferris wheel, all kinds of slides, swings and “cups”.
  • Skating on an ice rink for free in winter.
  • Doing yoga on the grass for free in summer.

Nowadays nothing in the park reminds of the former ruined state of this territory: the ponds have been improved, the lawns have been trimmed, neat alleys and tall trees perfectly contribute to calm and peaceful recreation of citizens and tourists.

Address: 25 Kuznetsovskaya Street, St. Petersburg.
How to get there: the nearest metro stations are Park Pobedy, Moskovskaya.

Operating mode: around the clock.
