Lianozovsky Park

Architectural monuments and a lot of greenery


The history of Lianozovsky Park dates back to the 16th century, when the old Altufievo estate was built. At the beginning of the 20th century its territory was transferred into the private ownership of oil industrialist Lianozov. The park was opened in the Soviet period (1932 is considered its foundation year, but it gained the status of Park of Culture and Leisure in 1931). Today, the place unites four park areas: Lianozovsky Park itself, the Bibirevo ethnographic village, the Altufievo estate, and Angarsky Ponds Park.

Locals call Lianozovsky Park an oasis in the metropolis: it is the home of unique trees and shrubs, as well as six ponds, children’s playgrounds, a small amusement park, summer cafes, and sports equipment rental points. The latter operate year-round: in spring and summer, they offer boat rentals, while in winter the rental point offers skis, sleds, tubes, and skates. The ski trails and the skating rink on the territory of Angarsky Ponds are open from December to March. In summer, visitors can play volleyball or basketball on special courts, spend time playing lawn or table tennis, do other sports, or relax by the water.

The Bibirevo ethnographic village is a park in the style of an ancient settlement located on the floodplain of the Chermyanka River. The area is well equipped, offering playgrounds for children and places for walks, and it often hosts various events, from concerts to festivals.

The Altufievo estate is a place which began its history as a park and one of the most beautiful monuments of estate architecture of the 18th–19th centuries. It includes a manor house, which retains its 1851 design, the restored Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, built in 1763, a brewery, stables, and a park with a pond. Altufiev’s manor house is recognized as a unique cultural monument. It is distinguished by the close intertwining of elements of stone and wooden ancient Russian architecture. The church has been restored, and its facades and halls are decorated with mosaic panels. The Altufievsky pond, which is surrounded by a garden and neat paths, is considered a pearl of the complex, in addition to the architectural monuments.
