Gorky Park (Moscow)

7

Gorky Park - the central vacation spot of all Muscovites, it is good at any time of year.

Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure is an amusement park in Moscow, named after Maxim Gorky. Gorky Park, situated just across the Moskva River from Park Kultury Metro Station, is famed abroad for the American writer Martin Cruz Smith’s novel and later film of the same name.

Gorky Park was opened in 1928 and is located at Krymsky Val and situated just across the Moskva River from Park Kultury Metro Station. The park was created by the amalgamation of the extensive gardens of the old Golitsyn Hospital and the Neskuchny Palace and covers an area of 300 acres (1.2 km²) along the river.

Gorky Park has children’s play areas, fun fairs, various amusement rides, an enormous Ferris wheel, and one of the mockups (test units) from the Buran space shuttle program, which allows children to take part in “the Cosmic Experience”. During the winter the footpaths flood over and freeze, which allow ice-skating around the park.

In its territory there is a complex of attractions: Alpine Slide, Virtual Capsule, Bumper Boats, Batman, Rabid Mill, Big Ben, Break Dance, Buran, Waltz, The Playground, Eurostar, Karting, Carpet Plane, Condor, Dream Ship, Laser Shooting Q-ZAR, Music Express, Niagara, Orbit, Brave Captain, Cave Horror, Trip to Africa, Winning Games, Rally, Silver Mine, Serpentine, Fairy Tale Train, Speedway, Super Bowl, Tire, Fantastic Voyage, Fly Machine, Chain Carousel and the Black Hole. If you not the fan of extreme attractions for you there is a boat station, tennis courts and playgrounds.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Fascinating Photographs of the Denishawn Dancers

    Much of modern dance as it is today owes a lot to Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, husband and wife who founded the famous school and dance company, the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts in 1915 Los Angeles, California. At first solo artists, St. Denis and Shawn began collaborating a year prior on dances often described as exotic and sensual, at times even erotic.

    Gommorah Girl: An Interview with Valerio Spada

    Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
