A green oasis Sep 29, 2016
When I walked from the train station Chomutov-mesto to the old town, I happened to walk through the city park. It is the largest and oldest park in Chomutov (city). As far as I read it was completed after an industry and trade show in 1913, but the beginnings going back to 1833 when a shooting gallery was built here. The shooting gallery was turned into a theatre in 1905/06 (see separate tip.)

I found the park to be nothing extraordinary, but it is a nice and peaceful oasis. Lawns alternate with trees, winding paths with (new and comfy) benches take you to all the corners of the park or just through it on the fastest way. There are rarely any flower beds as I noticed. Quite nice was the pond with water lilies (pic 2). I saw two pavillions, one of them looked like a bandshell with rows of benches in front, where probably concerts are given in summer (pic 1).

There are a couple of monuments in the park, too. One of them commemorates the vicitims of WWI and WWII and those of the communist regime 1948 - 89 (pic 3). Another (pic 4) commemorates the victims of facism, and finally there is another one (pic 5) for the soldiers of the people's Army, in typical communist era style.
