Mariinsky Park

A few weekends ago my husband and I stumbled upon a gem of a park here in Kyiv- Mariinsky Park. It was lightly drizzling, and we were taking a walk. I saw what initially looked like a small park, so I said “let’s explore this park when it’s not raining.” Well, we circled around the area, and the rain had let up, so we decided to check it out.

The park was much bigger than I initially thought it was. That weekend there were two festivals/events with music going on. The first one was a cultural festival and the other was a stage with a DJ and electronica music. I only took pictures of the cultural festival, where there were singers and dancers dressed in beautiful costumes:

After spending a little time checking out the festivities we continued walking through the over 130 year old park.

There are many events that are held throughout the year at Mariinsky Park, so we will definitely visit again!! For more information about the park, check this out:
