Andreja Pumpura Square was founded in the second half of the 19th century. Here you can hear bubbling of the fountain "Girl with a lily", from time to time tolling of St. Alexander Nevsky Orthodox chapel bells, and rattling of passing-by trams. To this day, the square has remained popular among the residents of the city as a place for walks and an important cultural space where various outdoor events are held.
Dubrovin Park was founded in 1882 and named after Pavel Dubrovin who was mayor of the city back then. The history of the park, the memorial objects located in it, the fountain and the rare tree species, which were planted during the time of P. Dubrovin, create a special ambience of the park which have become one of the most popular people`s gathering places and a place for organizing events.
