Good place for weekend recreation with kids. Park is very spacious and green. Good for bicycle rides, rollerskating and skateboarding. Has dancing Fountains, so bring change for younger kids.

Nizhniy Park

Reviewed By Andrey S

Outdated attractions for kids, partly remained from Soviet period, rumbling and lacking in security, most of them are for age 6+. Variety of ice-cream, coffee and snack kiosks is available around, don't expect any service standards.
The park also hosts a natural mineral water spring, but be aware that the water is rich with iron and not adopted for table use (not as tasty as bottled Lipetsk water, but definitely good for health).

The Monument to Peter I

Reviewed By Lipetsk - Lipetsk, Russia

The monument is in the very centre of Lipetsk, easily accessed by buses ##27,30, 330 (when you go to the newer side of Lipetsk, the so-called Novolipetsk - an industrial heart of the city), or the same buses plus 22, 322, 325 when you go from Novolipetsk to the centre of the city (in this case the stop is on the side of Nizhny Park with its Zoo and children attractions) but you'll have to cross the road. The square where the monument is erected is rather spacious and is also famous by its big Fountain which is especially spectacular at night with its light and music show. You'll make a good selfie with monument in the background.
They say the great Russian emperor Peter I made several visits to Lipetsk. Regular official city fests are celebrated here. And the most succesful schoolchildren get their passports here at the age of 14 from the regional authorities. There are several cafes and kiosks with soft drinks and juices and snacks nearby.
There's also another monument to Peter I from the 19th century in Lipetsk which is more modest and shows the development of iron-making plants in Lipetsk in the 18th century.

Chapel Apostles Peter and Paul

Reviewed By 25091945 - Lipetsk, Russia

Часовню построили на месте снесённой филармонии, т.к. на её историческом месте стоит памятник революционерам (в народе называемый "Мужик с полотенцем").
Изначально в часовне было безумно холодно, даже летом, потом, как мне кажется, провели отопление, но всё ещё иногда включают обогреватели, и весь пол застелили коврами.
В часовне всегда мало посетителей, тихо, спокойно, приятное место.

Bykhanov's Garden

Reviewed By wayne c - Lipetsk, Russia

Bykhanov Cad is right outside our apartment window. Large, heavily wooded and constantly filled with families out enjoying the day. Moderate level of rides, etc for the little ones. Great place for people watchers. Everybody from runners, bikers, walkers to Babushkas pushing baby carriages. Very safe, we walk there daily with no issues.

Christ Cathedral Christmas

Reviewed By Vladimir K - Moscow, Russia

Христо-Рождественский кафедральный собор расположен в центре города на Соборной площади. Освящен в 1801 г. Без преувеличения его можно назвать одной из визитных карточек Липецка. Издалека выглядит очень грациозно и величественно. Также впечатляет и внутри. Обязательно посетите собор. К тому же вокруг так много интересных и любимых мест прогулок горожан и туристов (Комсомольский пруд, каскад фонтанов Центральный парк и др.).

Lipetsk Regional Local Lore Museum

Reviewed By Kelly H - New York City, New York

The Lipetsk regional lore museum was, we were told, housed until not too long ago in the city cathedralon the central square. Reportedly, when the Cathedral was renovated and returned to religious services, the museum was moved to its current location. Whether that was an accurate report or mot, the museum certainly shows signs of recent renovation and updating. The displays are not generally interactive, but are modern, clean, present information without an overwhelming ideological bias, and are attractive to both youth and adults. Most, if not all of the information labels were in Russian, but they were clearly printed and fresh, not the typewritten notices from the previous century that are found in many regional museums. There were a few very sad stuffed animals in the natural history section, but even they looked better than most.
The museum covered social, economic, military and political history from prehistory to present, with heavy emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. Altogether a good stop for those trying to get an overview of local history, and of course for school kids.

Lipetsk State Academic Drama Theater

Reviewed By wayne c - Lipetsk, Russia

The theater hosted a performance by the Imperial Moscow Ballet. They were marvelous. I had never seen anything like it. Classical ballet is not my style but this show was highly imaginative, colorful and fun to watch. The skill levels of choreography alone were worth the ticket. Wonderfully done.
