Swings, roundabouts and cars…
The amusement Park at all times remains a favorite vacation spot of children and adults (not all, but some ).
A few years ago in Gelendzhik was created by extreme amusement Park “Admiral Vrungel” — with a huge Ferris Wheel, the tall “Cobra” and other “powerups” of adrenaline. Having existed for three years, it was closed and completely dismantled (leaving only the entrance and the fence ).
So today in Gelendzhik, again, only TWO of the Town theme:
the first (and will be considered further) — near the center of the city, near the Stadium on Kirov street (and city clinic). To get into the Park is easiest via the waterfront (if You walk). But Parking can be a problem. After seven in the evening, you can leave your “iron horse” around the clinic. During daylight hours this “trick” will not work .
— the second Park on the promenade roughly in the middle of the Bay — details HERE. This Park is open only in summer.
