South Gates Park

An oasis of peace within the city

As you have probably figured by now, Bishkek is quite a green city. Still, we couldn't help adding another park to our list. Officially this park's name is Victory Park, but people know it as 'Iuzhnye vorota', which is South Gates from Russian. People love it mostly for one feature — it is one of the most quiet and peaceful places within the city.

Consider yourself lucky if you catch any interesting events the park is often home to. Like the Tengri Open-air International Classical Music Festival, when talented musicians from different parts of the world gather in Bishkek to give an overwhelming performance.
