Gorky Park in Nha Trang is a Russian island in Vietnam
Tourists who come to Vietnam are never surprised by Vietnamese names such as Dok Let , Bai Dai , Hon Tam, but everyone, without exception, is interested in the name of the central park in Nha Trang – Gorky Park.
No one remembers why it was so called, but the Russians who live here have long been accustomed to this name and believe that it should be so, since a large number of Russians, Ukrainians, Byelorussians and people from the CIS countries have long settled in Nyachang , who just wanted to get close to the sea.
The name “Central Park” for some reason no one uses, but everyone knows that Gorky Park is one of the most popular places on the coast , along with the famous club Sailing Club , which just turned 23 years old.
The territory of the park is not very large, mostly tourists come here to have a snack, ride on the attractions of their children and splash in the sea.
Below you can see the map of the park in Vietnamese, English and Russian:
The entrance is free.
The beach, located next to the Central Park, has its name – “Dream Beach” (or “Dream Beach”) and is always filled with vacationers. Here you can easily rent a sunbed under an umbrella, there is a toilet, showers and cabins for changing clothes.
The beach is divided into several zones: econom (economy), standart (standard) and VIP (comfort). The zones differ in the cost of renting sunbeds:
“Standard” – 60 000 VND (sunbed, swimming pool + free Wi-Fi)
“VIP” – 100 000 VND (standard + towel)
The sea in Vietnam is not always calm, during the rainy season and several months after it (October – March), the waves on the sea are quite high, so during this period, vacationers move to the territory of the pools operating in Gorky Park.
There are several pools. They differ slightly in size and depth. Near the pools there is a small bar where you can buy refreshments.
The pool area is free of charge. You will have to pay if you want to use the chaise-longue (the cost ranges from 60 000 to 100 000 VND, depending on the zone ).
On Sundays here, on the territory of the pools, a local Party Pool Party is held with music, cocktails and other entertainments. Russians living in Nha Trang also periodically drop in here to drink, meet old friends and find new ones.
