Located on Sumska Blvd., the premier artery in Kharkov, you will find beautiful woods, folk festivals in fall and spring, and areas to relax and watch our great Ukrainian friends and families. Perhaps, if you speak a little Russian, you can actually enjoy trying it out here. Also moderately priced restaurants and services line Sumska in the area. The park... More

Beautiful Sunday afternoon so took a walk through the park with a colleague. Nice vibrant feel with lots of student age people enjoying the sun. Plenty of families and groups of friends, couples taking walks in a nice little retreat from the city traffic. Very nice way to spend some time in the sun.

A lovely park to stroll through, the dolphinarium and zoo are inside the park. There are lovely fountains and plenty of children's activities. You could spend hours here.

Historically, this is a University park, but totally open to public now. Quiet and absolutely beautiful in the morning at any season. A bit noisy in the evening, though... Kharkiv Zoo and Dophinarium are insode this park

The park is pretty big, with paths going every which way. On days with good weather, the place is packed. Heaps of places for snacks if you are peckish.

The monument is located in the city center, in the garden that has the same name – Shevchenko Garden. Monument height is close 52 fits, and since the opening celebration of the monument took...
