‘Birch Grove’, or Birch Park (Berezovaya Roscha) is a park close to the city center but not exactly in the downtown. A hundred years ago it was a city cemetery, and, according to some ‘witnesses’, it is still possible to find occasional human bones there. But it is no more than gossip, as the park exists there for several decades now, and it was rearranged many times. Now it is a big green territory offering various recreation opportunities for the visitors, like bicycle and inline skates rental in summer and skiing, skating and tobogganing opportunities in winter.

Besides, it is a place for many different events, and for little ones it offers all kinds of fun like merry-go-rounds, labyrinths and playgrounds. For those who get hungry or thirsty there are many cafeterias and cafes, and, of course, ice-cream stands offering ice-cream even in the middle of winter (no wonder, you are in Siberia!).

A great advantage is that the park is now accessible by metro. Just go to the station with the same name (Berezovaya Roscha), and you are guaranteed a good portion of fresh air amidst a busy metropolis.
