Mandarin shopping and recreational center is located near the wharf and Bestuzhev Park. It consists of nine buildings with shops, cafes, restaurants, entertainment venues, and a watchtower. The alleys and the squares of the complex as well as its pedestrian bridges and summer terraces all have the same architectural style. In the center is the Mandarin Hall concert hall with 1,200 seats, made to look like an amphitheater. Its main attractions are the vast pool and 130 fountains. The concert hall is the permanent stage for the Argonauts theater-and-circus performance.
While at the Mandarin, you can do some shopping, have a swim at the open-air pools, rest in the comfortable parks, have a meal at one of the cafes and restaurants, and let your children enjoy the two-level recreational center. The Mandarin is also Russia’s first recreational center with its own beach equipped with showers, romantic bungalos, changing rooms, sling chairs with sun umbrellas, and a beach volleyball court.
