Tiraspol What to see in Tiraspol

Pobeda Park for Culture and Leisure

The idea of ​​creating the park belonged to the famous Soviet architect A.V. Shchusev, who visited Tiraspol in the postwar years. A park with an area of ​​15 hectares was laid out in 1947 on the territory of the former fruit and berry garden, which was then located outside the eastern outskirts of the city. The present-day name was given to the new city landmark in honor of the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

Over time, the park was enriched with a fountain, a summer stage, attractions and playgrounds and became one of the favorite vacation spots for residents of the capital.

Various cultural events are regularly held here; a café welcomes you and a large Ferris wheel offers an impressive panorama of the city.

In 1960 a monument to G.I. Kotovsky, Soviet military and political figure of the Civil War and participant of revolutionary movement, was put up in the center of the park. Kotovsky showed courage on the battlefields of the First World War, then fought with the Romanian invaders in Bessarabia. In 1920, a cavalry brigade under his command won Tiraspol from the Armed Forces of South Russia.
Kotovsky’s unit in those days was considered one of the best in the entire Red Army.
