Shevchenko Park - Review

Also known as the Central Park of Culture and Recreation of Taras Shevchenko, this massive complex can take nearly half a day to see, more if you want to catch a match at the stadium.

It was originally of Fort in 1795. After the Russell Turkish war of 1811 it was turned into a portside quarantine known as Serf’s Garden. The ruins of Fortress Hadzhibey and the Quarantine arcade (Powder Tower) and watchtower are still present at the site. In keeping with its military past, the park also has several monuments, including the Alexander II Column, the Monument to the Warriors of Internationalism, the Monument to an Unknown Sailor, and the Monument to the Perished Sailors.

The south end of the park has the Odessa Luna Park and its famous Ferris Wheel. It also has the Odessa Astronomical Observatory. The main attraction of the park is the Chornomorets Stadium, Fitness Gym and Odessa Museum of Football.

 The park was the delight of famous Russian writers, including Zhukovskiy, Gogol, Ostrovskiy, Dostoyevskiy, and Chekhov. Most people tend to end up at the park accidentally, when they’re leaving the beach. It’s a terrific place for a stroll. Check out the ruins of the Green Theatre in the park, where performances are sometimes held.

  • Nice place to go for a walk. There are all kinds of other options as well as like skateboarding and attraction park with all sorts of rides including fairy wheel. You can enjoy nice views on sea port and sea in general. And if you get hungry, there are many options to get grilled food or just any kind of fast food. This park is beautiful and huge - the city stadium is right there as a part of the park.
