This excursion i will remember for a long time. It was the most interesting tour where I was. When we entered here, we saw a lot of trees. Our guided tours led us to the lake, and we were amazed by that beautiful nature. The birds sang and the squirres played in the trees. We walked in the park and... More

Very big and beautiful park with a lot of statues, sculptures, waterfalls and stones. Definitely worth a visit, does not matter what season it is. I recommend to take a guided excursion, as there is an interesting story behind its creation and there is a lot of hidden meaning in the different parts of the park, which become clear only... More

For sure it is one of the most amazing garden-parks that I've ever seen! Ukrain can be very much proud of! We were there on the 25th of October. Autumn is so beautiful and you realize it there. My advice would be to go there one of the other season day (actually, and winter, and spring, and sommer)

Sophiyivska park was an absolutely beautiful way to spend a day trip from Kyiv (or Odessa, or Dnipro, etc.). Depending on your outlook, it could be considered overcrowded or lively. I fell into the latter category on my visit and I delighted in the lively and excited crowds of Ukrainian, Polish, and even Russian tourists that joined me in touring... More

Also, don.t forget to take some food for dinner, coz there is no place to get normal meal there. You can find big amount of... More

Amazing park! Beautiful and tragic love story of the owners. Rich collection of the trees and herbs. Make a boat trip on underground river! It was something!

In good weather that's what you need to see with a good bus drive along the alleys and a small picnic on the lawn among the statues and perfect nature

Such park is very interesting. It is unusual for Ukraine and remind me more Irish parks. Count Pototskiy built it for Sofia. It explains the name. There are many interesting places but the most fascinating is underground river with a boat service. I think it is one of the longest such a things in Europe. Welcome everybody!
