Kurortny Park

Reviewed By Gala2812 - Volgograd, Russia

This park is the heart of the town, its very essence. Starting from the Narzan gallery with its mineral water sources, it stretches along the slopes of the hill. The park has a number of paths of different levels of difficulty suitable for walking, biking, running and other activities. It is important to have suitable footwear as the paths are partly without asphalt coating and may be dirty after rain. There are different landscapes in the park real nice to observe: grooves and alleys, Bridges and meadows. The map includes such beautiful names (and places) as the Valley of Roses, The Tea House, the Red Sones, the Glass Stream, the Temple of Air... There is the ropeway going to the top called the Big Saddle mount. Cafes and restaurants in the park serve mostly traditional Caucasian and Russian food, herbal tea, coffee and alcohol but the prices are not cheap. It might be a good idea to take water, sandwiches and fruits for a long walk. The park is real huge, it has many entrances and it would take a few days to walk it all or most of its territory. Its great here at any season. If you like animals you can take some nuts and bread to feed squirrels and birds, they would eat from hands if you're patient enough. Not to forget, this resort is known for the unique healing air that can even cure asthma without any other interventions. Summing up, the Kislovodsk park is the perfect outdoor place for every age and and every season that would fill you up with energy, health and positive emotions.

Aeolian Harp

Reviewed By Olya Z - Moscow, Russia

This is first of all an atmosphere place - great view is a nice bonus. The harp itself had its strings, but they were removed in 50-s, now the music is being played from the speakers, but it's still great. Music is very relaxing and you can feel harmony there.

The Eagle Mounument

Reviewed By oranya - Aldergrove, Canada

One of the many look-outs around Pyatigorsk's Mashuk mountain. This one is directly above the old mineral water spa region. The eagle monument is adjacent to it. Worth the walk to enjoy the view.

Remember this is not the exact spot, which is unknown. The only attraction is the monument with some tourists having too much attraction to the stone and little respect to the idea of the memorial.

Air Temple

Reviewed By 2-Wheyayeman-2 - Russia

Seeing something called 'Temple' you expect more than an alcove. I guess it is just an attraction for tourists who need some reason to get there. Nothing of interest at all.
