  • We were here two years ago, this year the park is under construction. It seems like they are trying to make it bigger and better.  more »
  • Shevchenko Garden (garden, rather than Park) is a nice place in the center of Kharkov. Closer to sumskaya Street is a monument to Taras Shevchenko-cult Ukrainian writer (Kobzar). This monument is considered to be the most epic Kobzar. Many garden shops. There are also musical fountain, concert hall, Ukraine, Dolphinarium Nemo known since Soviet times Café Crystal. Closer to Europe's largest square (freedom square) is the oldest in Ukraine Karazinskiy University and relative new restaurant Capri (with good Italian-Caucasian cuisine). On the opposite side of the garden is Shevchenko theatre of Opera and Ballet (known by the Soviet-Ukrainian ASAP). Also in the garden is a large Zoo, which is now under construction. In the garden there are a couple of playgrounds. For two years now, is phasing the garden, which should make the real Pearl of Shevchenko garden.

Where to stay in Kharkiv

A major industrial center, Kharkiv mostly caters to business travelers visiting the city for only a day or two. Budget accommodations can be hard to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. Book ahead if you plan to stay near the city center, where elegantly furnished hotel rooms come with free Wi-Fi, secure parking, and access to safe deposit boxes. For something less expensive, check out the city's hostels, which offer small but tidy rooms with shared restrooms and common dining areas.
