Parks of Simferopol: description and history
The capital of Crimea is a beautiful and very green city. The parks of Simferopol are pleasantly surprised not only by their appearance, but also by their interesting history.
For example, Gagarinsky park owes itsbasis of one of the Moscow officials. He, stopping briefly in Simferopol, wished to visit the main green zone of the city. The official was taken to the current Trenyov park, but he did not like an important metropolitan guest. The city authorities got out, saying that they are going to create a central recreation area not far from the railway station. Since the official promised to personally control this process, the idea had to be translated into reality. So the modern park named after Yuri Gagarin appeared.
Some parks of Simferopol appeared in suchplaces that were previously completely unsuitable for such purposes. For example, the City Garden was laid out in the first third of the XIX century on a huge dump! As one of the local historians wrote, the townspeople had to cover their nose with their hands when they passed near this place. In 1820 a beautiful garden was founded here, in which more than one generation of Simferopol people walk with pleasure.
Interesting and a bit gloomy story at the squarethe name of Lenin, which welcomes almost all visiting tourists and travelers. It is located near the train station. The square was defeated in 1922 at the place where public executions took place during the Civil War.
Not all parks of Simferopol survived to ourdays So, the oldest green area of the city, according to archival documents, appeared at the end of the XVIII century. It occupied the territory between Dybenko Street and the current rail transport technical school.

Our leader has several titles.(Vorontsovka, Botanical Garden of TNU), but most often it is called the Salgirka Park. In the XIX century this territory belonged to the German academician Pallas. In his estate, he gathered an impressive collection of flora and minerals. Later, the estate was bought by Prince Mikhail Vorontsov. Today the park is decorated with one of its palaces.
