Other than the eternal flame, there's not much here except for a large, open, flat field. We were only here because we were dropped off on one side and wanted to walk to a destination on the other side. When we returned we walked across...More

Unless you know the significance of the Park it is not too impressive. The internal flame represents the victims of the 1917 uprising were buried here. However, there did not appear to be any signs,plaques etc. To explain the site

Nice gardens to walk through and relax if you have the time. Wouldn't say it's a must do, but still nice.

Open park area with walkways that opens to a very nice bak view of the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. Worth it alone for the view of the church. Was very peaceful, not a lot of pedestrian traffic while here.

This is an open space of land located near the Summer Gardens and back from the Neva river. There's an eternal flame here, but it's not really maintained in good condition. There's not that much of interest and it's not worth going out of your...More
