  • Walking through Gorky Park, I get aesthetic pleasure. First of all, it's beautiful. Very beautiful, green, fresh, a lot of becacations, plantings, etc. Secondly, there are a lot of happy faces: children frolic, couples hugging, youth tusitis, families with wheelchairs walk, the younger generation is engaged in sports, old people slowly raving Under the handle... You look around, and the soul rejoices, what a beautiful city we have, and what wonderful people around! Such a charge of energy you get here, which is enough for a long time! And also hanging, rides, playgrounds! And the disco for the old man is worth it! There is no such thing anywhere)) I love Gorky Park! The only thing that is missing is good cafes.
