Tauride Garden – Peaceful local park

This park is non-touristic though it’s located next to the center of the city. It has no impressive things to offer to a pretentious visitor except maybe the Tauride Palace (which is closed for visitors but could be seen behind the lake) but you can have a rest, see how locals play badminton or buy ice cream – as if it’s still the era of the USSR.

My favorite thing to do in Tauride Garden during the warm time of the year is buying cherries near the subway station, washing them at any cafeteria and sitting on the grass or bench. During the cold months I prefer walking around with a cup of coffee!

On the other side of Tauride garden, you can find a Greenhouse with hot wet air and exotic plants (and also the cute cafe called Lemonade!).

Next to it, there is an indoor ice skating rink where you can rent a pair of skates and have a slide even in the middle of summer. Mind the timetable (in Russian).
