Recreation Park n.a. Maxim Gorky (Strukovsky garden) is located in the Leninsky district of Samara, on the bank of the Volga river. The park is almost half a square mile large. Established in 1851, Strukovsky Garden is the oldest park in Samara. Near the park, you can find Samara Academic Drama Theatre n.a. Maxim Gorky, where the “On the hills of Manchuria” waltz, dedicated to the soldiers fallen during the Russo-Japanese War, was first performed at the beginning of the XX century. Strukovsky Garden is situated on the hillside, and is an example of beautiful landscape design, with lots of flowerbeds, fountains, and landscape compositions. There you can see a hippo, a goat, which is a symbol of the city, and giant chess pieces. It also includes an amusement park for children and various cafés. On summer weekends, you can listen to a brass band playing. In August, the Flower festival, which is one of the most beautiful festivals of Samara, and the “Plastilinovyi Dozhd” festival take place in the Strukovsky garden.
