Stryiskiy park


Stryiskiy park

Stryiskiy Park – is a real pearl in Lvov. It is one of the oldest and one of the most beautiful parks in Lvov.

It is a memorial of landscape architecture of national value. Here you can have great time near the lake with swans, you can see 200 species of trees and plants, you can wander along the paths and you will most definitely be surprised by the handmade castle ruins.

The park was built in 1876-1879. The architect who created the park was Arnold Rering. The park is taking the place of former Stryiske cemetery that was closed in 1823. When the park was finished, 1879, they began to plan trees (more than 40000) and bushes. Apart from usual plants there are also some exotic species – tulip tree, ginkgo, red oak, Japanese lilac etc. in 1895 the monument to Yan Kilinskiy was installed in the park. He was one of the participants of polish rise against Russia. That’s why the park has one more name – Kilinskiy Park.

Since 1984 the biggest fair in Lvov takes place in this park. To honor this event they created the first tram way lane in Lvov, which was also the first tramway lane in Europe.

In 1951 the kids’ railway was installed in the park. It was built using the tramway lanes that were close to the fair.

Today the park occupies the territory more than 52 hectares and consists of 3 landscape parts: lower parterre zone, forest zone, upper terrace zone. Stryiskiy park is one of the best examples of landscaping in Europe. It charms both the citizens and the visitors of the town by its uniqueness.
