Is there a park with wood-carvings nearby Yalta ??

by globetrott Online Now Oct 19, 2002 at 2:03 PM

I visited a park, beautifully surrounded by man-sized wooden figures - - and many figures of fairytales made of wood - - more than 18 years ago... I think it was in YALTA - maybe it was in ODESSA ?? It was an excursion with the crew-bus in a port in Black Sea, that is for sure - - but I could not find any more infos about it so far. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Anybody may help me ???

    Hi Inga ! Thanks a lot - I took only a few pics as my film was finished, but I liked especially the fence, made of life-size wooden figures, that looked like soldiers watching. Michael

    U r welcome, Michael. I was too little when I was there (about 4 years-old), and did not visit it after but this plae is really very known and popular. There is a bus stop "poliana skazok", as far as I remember.
