Vilnius Private Tour: Uzhupis City Walking Tour
"Although Uzhupis (Užupis) is a vital neighbourhood in Vilnius City it beats to the rhythm of its own drum. As this neighbourhood is separated by a river from the old town it's name hails from a literal phrase “beyond the river” pronounced ‘Uzhupis’. Back in the day Uzhupis used to be a drowsy even rough neighbourhood but today it's an artists paradise and bohemian Vilnius getaway often compared to Montmartre in Paris or Kristiania in Copenhagen.

Gorky Park Tips (3)

Maksim Gorky Central Children's Park

Maksim Gorky Central Children's Park (Belarusian Cyrillic: Цэнтральны парк дзіцяці імем Максіма Горкага or Russian Cyrillic: Центральный детский парк им. Максима Горького) or simple Gorky park in Minsk (Belarusian Cyrillic: Парк Горкага ў Мінску or Russian Cyrillic: Парк Горького в Минске) is beautiful public park located near Victory square.

This is the oldest park in Minsk, dated back to 1800. Formerly known as City Gardens since 1936 renamed to Gorky Park in honor to popular writer. It is look as classic English park.
Main attraction in park is Ferris wheel that I call fan viewing-point. It is 54 meter high, move very slow in mostly closed cabins and offer spectacular view over City. Here is also small observatory and planetarium. For all sports lower here is big indoor skating rink and stadium.
It is visit trough whole year.

A family day out

After finding that the two museums I'd wanted to visit were temporarily shut I decided to wander down to Gorky Park. It was a gorgeous sunny Sunday and the park was bustling with families all looking for a fun day out. There were fast, circulating, fairground rides, sweets, icecreams and candyfloss to buy and cheap plastic toys available to entertain the kids. I really enjoyed this insight into how families may spend their leisure time in Minsk. It struck me that there was very little difference between this and any other European city on a sunny, warm Sunday afternoon.

The park is free to enter and I think the rides were about 12,000 Roubles for a go; that is less than one £1 and about 1 Euro (May 2013).

Gorky Park

Just beside the Circus, opposite to the Yanka Kupala Park, on the right side of the Skarina ave lies the Maksim Gorky Central Children's Park (центральный детский парк им. Максима Горького), a nice park of the 19th century mainly dedicated to children with some amusement machines like the big wheel which is a symbol of the park. There's also an observatory and a planetarium, as well as several football fields and an ice hockey indoor palace where President Lukashenka likes to practis his favourite sport. The river Svislač flows around the park dividing it from the upper town.
