Olympic Park

Local name: Parc Olympique

The Olympic Park in Lausanne is a city garden, established in 1993. It was opened along with a museum dedicated to the history of sport and the International Olympic Committee. The park covers an area of 8,000 m2 and is located in the resort of Ouchy, Switzerland. Olympic sculptures and symbols have been placed in the garden, but the greatest attraction are the beautiful views of Lake Geneva and the Alps.

Inside the park is the Olympic Museum, divided into three levels. The sections "Olympic World", "Olympic Games" and "Olympic Spirit" present exhibits from around the world, from ancient times to the present day. Eight white poles lead to the gallery, with the names of summer and winter Olympic Games, as well as the names of the Presidents of the Olympic Committee.

In the Olympic Park, tourists can admire the large fountains and works of art related to the history of the Games. The dates of all matches with the names of players who lit the Olympic flame during the opening ceremony since 1936 were written on the stairs nearby. An eternal flame was placed directly in front of the entrance to the Olympic Museum.
